The Lord’s Prayer (2)
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world” (vv. 20-24).
Today, is known as Holy Saturday. A day to reflect on what has taken place. A day to remember the awful consequence of Sin. Jesus has suffered death on the cross. He has been laid in a borrowed tomb. For his immediate followers, the future Is uncertain, to say the least. Holy Saturday is the day of quiet, before Resurrection Day!
Holy Saturday is also a good day to remember what our merciful God has accomplished for us. He has made a way for our salvation. He has taken care of sin’s consequence once and for all. We can live fully for him, because of Jesus’ sacrifice for us!
Jesus prays for us! He prays that we might be one with him and his Father! He prays that we might share in his purpose: the salvation of the lost. He prays that His followers together will show the world God’s plan of salvation, God’s GLORY!
