John 17:6 (KJV)
I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
Jesus was praying for the men that God had given him. He had done what God had intended him to do. In equipping to them to continue his ministry when he was gone, each of these men belonged to God and where placed in Jesus’ care. Jesus acknowledges the fact that each of them had kept the word. Each was following the teaching and directions they had received over the last three years.
Today every Christian will be entrusted with individuals to help along the way. They still belong to god but we need to invest in each one of them the same as Jesus invested in his disciples. Working with and praying for those that we have close to us.
Place individuals of you’re choosing in my life that I may invest in them. In doing so give me the opportunity to be more like Jesus, giving me the wisdom that I need to proclaim your name to others.
In Jesus name I pray amen
