“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 17:2-3) Scripture Reading – John 3:16-21 The Father desires to receive glory, and it’s the Son who came to glorify the Father by submitting to His will and dying on the cross for our sins. This opened the doors of heaven for all who would believe in the Son. The glory of the Father is linked to giving us eternal life. Jesus’ obedience to the Father should be considered in light of Adam’s disobedience. When Adam and Eve sinned in Paradise by disobeying God’s command and eating fruit

“When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, ‘Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you,’” (John 17:1) Scripture Reading – Matthew 6:5-15 The hour had come. Think about that for a moment. How would you have felt? Jesus knows that the countdown has reached zero. This is the whole reason He came.

“Jesus answered them, ‘Do you now believe? Behold, the hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home, and will leave me alone. Yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me.” (John 16:31-32) Scripture Reading – II Timothy 4:9-18 Pride blinds us to reality. It’s our proud hearts that can so easily deceive us into a false evaluation of ourselves, because we think more highly of ourselves than we should. Pride causes us to put confidence in ourselves to produce something rather than remembering that our fruit-bearing comes from abiding in Christ. Here, the disciples are in a precarious position. They think they have Jesus all figured out when, in fact, the
