Lenten Devo #37–He Who Sent Me

“And Jesus cried out and said, “Whoever believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. And whoever sees me sees him who sent me.” (John 13:44-45)


Jesus' ministry was all about pointing to the Father, the one who had sent him. He never did anything from himself, but only did what the Father sent him to do. Even the Son of God did not find his identity in himself, but found it in the Father. How much more so then are we to find our identity in God?


And if we find our identity in God, so too must we find our mission in him. In fact, to reflect the identity of God is key to the mission, for reflecting the character of God is what draws people into the love of Christ.


That means even our prayers for our own sanctification are "missional." For the more we reflect God's character, the more appealing we make the faith. Same goes with prayers for our fellow Christians.


Who are you praying for today?
