Red Letter Wisdom-The Desire of Jesus

October 8th, 2019

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Wisdom from the Red Letters is found in John 17:24.

Jesus prayed, “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.”

Jesus was faithful to His mission from start to finish. The book of Hebrews tells us that for the joy set before Him, He endured the cross, scorning its shame.

The yearning of Jesus’ heart was to be with His followers in a place of glory. It was by Jesus going to the cross that we have the opportunity to go to heaven and to see Jesus in His joy someday.

The words of Jesus inspire us to walk with Jesus and seek His glory in the Year of Redemption.
