Bible: John 17:11-23

17:11 I 1  am no longer in the world, but 2  they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them safe 3  in your name 4  that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are one. 5  17:12 When I was with them I kept them safe 6  and watched over them 7  in your name 8  that you have given me. Not one 9  of them was lost except the one destined for destruction, 10  so that the scripture could be fulfilled. 11  17:13 But now I am coming to you, and I am saying these things in the world, so they may experience 12  my joy completed 13  in themselves. 17:14 I have given them your word, 14  and the world has hated them, because they do not belong to the world, 15  just as I do not belong to the world. 16  17:15 I am not asking you to take them out of the world, but that you keep them safe 17  from the evil one. 18  17:16 They do not belong to the world 19  just as I do not belong to the world. 20  17:17 Set them apart 21  in the truth; your word is truth. 17:18 Just as you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world. 22  17:19 And I set myself apart 23  on their behalf, 24  so that they too may be truly set apart. 25 

Jesus Prays for Believers Everywhere

17:20I am not praying 26  only on their behalf, but also on behalf of those who believe 27  in me through their testimony, 28  17:21 that they will all be one, just as you, Father, are in me and I am in you. I pray 29  that they will be in us, so that the world will believe that you sent me. 17:22 The glory 30  you gave to me I have given to them, that they may be one just as we are one 17:23 I in them and you in me – that they may be completely one, 31  so that the world will know that you sent me, and you have loved them just as you have loved me.
