TWO POWERFUL CLAIMS IN JOHN 17

Eternal life
This is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and the one you have sent—Jesus Christ. (John 17:3)

Truth
Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. (John 17:17)
1. Jesus prayed we will keep the UNITY of the SPIRIT.
(1) Unity is not UNIFORMITY (sameness).
(2) Unity is not UNIFICATION (human effort).
(3) Unity is our SHARED CONNECTION in Christ.
2. Jesus prayed we will be WITH Him to see His GLORY.
Charles Spurgeon
“He did not say he wished his people to be in heaven; but WITH HIM IN HEAVEN, because that makes heaven heaven. There shall we have no fields to till, no garment to spin, no wearied limb, no dark distress, no burning thirst, no pangs of hunger, no weepings of bereavement; we shall have naught to do or think upon, but for ever to gaze upon that Sun of Righteousness, to be satisfied forever with his favor, and full with the goodness of the Lord! Oh! if we have only to die to get to such delights as these—death is gain, it is swallowed up in victory!”
THREE WAYS TO KNOW FOR CERTAIN YOU'LL BE WITH JESUS

(1) The price Jesus paid (John 3:14)
(2) The promise Jesus made (John 14:1)
(3) The prayer Jesus prayed (John 17:24)
3. Jesus prayed we will be FILLED with His LOVE.
