John 17:25-26 (KJV)

O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

            Jesus closes his prayer with an important and all encompassing truth. That as he is one with God we will be one with him and every believer will have the intimate relationship that Jesus has with the father. Not just for a fleeting moment but for all of eternity.

            The eternal bond between the saints and God can never be lost or taken away. We have the assurance that we will pass through the grave and into the presence of Jesus himself for all eternity. This bond is strengthened here on earth by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. That still small voice that can be heard as we pray.

Dear Lord:

            Thank you for providing with an eternal companion that protects and guides me in the world. Giving me the guidance I need to fulfill each and every task that you have placed before me. Give me the same love that you share with the father that I may share it with the world and be able to share the gospel as people can see you in me.

In Jesus name I pray amen.
