Jesus Prayer For Me

" Sanctify them by the truth; your word is the truth" John 17:17
(sanctify to set apart for a sacred use or make holy)
" In the begining was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" John 1:1
When I first read this scripture I was thinking about God's word being the bible but then reading it again I am thinking of how Jesus is the word.
I think both would apply because the word of God does a work of sanctification in my life on a daily basis. When my heart and attitude are not holy all I need to do is look to the word the bible for an adjustment.
I am so thankful for Jesus being the living translation of the Father's heart for His children.
The scripture in John 17:17 was actually Jesus prayer for me. How amazing is that. I love to read his prayers for me. They are so powerful.
Thank you Jesus for praying for me.

God transforming us through His truth is a two option deal: address it or ignore it. if we choose to "ignore" it, then we can be sure that it will come back again. like you, noel, i'm so happy that Jesus loves me so much that He wants me to be like Him. that makes me feel very special/loved. i'm always pondering the spiritual epidemic of the "disconnect" from knowing (mind) to realizing (soul).

Hmmmm. good word study. It is amazing to think that when you replace the "word" with "Jesus", there are specific implications to my Christianity.

Oh, by the way, I just now read your Nevada Day parade blog. And yes, I left you a lovely comment.

Love you sis.
