Scripture: “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” (John 17:1-3)
As the people of God, we are called to be devoted to Jesus and to the glory of God. His mission was to bring the good news of eternal life, to reveal God to people so that they would believe in him, have a relationship with him, know him. As we are swept up into the mission of God, we become reflectors of his glory and the glory of his Son. And through us, God reveals himself to others who do not yet know him.
Prayer (pray for the unbelievers in your life who do not yet know the Lord Jesus):
“Father, glorify Christ in me and teach me to be devoted to Jesus—who lived for me, died for me, and was raised from the dead for me. And let the image of Christ in me glorify your name so that unbelievers would see and believe, and thereby have eternal life. Amen.”
