There are a number of dynamics of Jesus' prayer to His Father in John 17. We find that He is completely clear on the fact that He existed with the Father before anything in existence was created. By default Jesus is God, as He acknowledges that the Father shared His glory with Jesus, something that the Father shares with no man. Last week Nancy talked about Jesus' request that the Father now glorify Him and what that meant. But the end game of His prayer, and the reason He arrived on this planet, is to save us. He prayed for our salvation and our protection all the way through our individual lives right into His presence. That is the end game, the ultimate end game; life forever and ever with the One Who created us. The extra bonus is the peace that we can have regardless of our circumstances while we're still on our journey home. This week we continue in John 17.
