Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 16 March 2024

Realizing that the time for his departure was at hand, Jesus engaged with the Father in prayer. Notice the basis of His prayer in vs.1,4&5. What can we learn from this for our own prayers? God’s primary reason for sending Jesus is to give us eternal life (vs.2-3). Jesus was confident to ask the Father to give Him His unspoiled glory (v.5) because He had accomplished His mission (v.4). He has given us eternal life and commissioned us to extend the gospel to others (2 Corinthians 5:20; Matthew 28:19-20).

How concerned are you about rescuing those perishing around you? The life of every believer is meant to bring glory to God just like that of Jesus. The glory is God’s character and presence in our lives that attract other people to Him. Do you live and work to bring people to God as Christ did?

Read v.11 again and identify the major prayers of Christ for the Church. Unity is the strongest force that makes living with God and one another joyful. It brings God’s special care, protection, and victory.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
