I AM NOT PRAYING FOR THE WORLD
John 17:6-10 / David VanAcker
6 “I have manifested your name to the people whom you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. 7 Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you. 8 For I have given them the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me. 9 I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours. 10 All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them.
The big idea of this passage is that Jesus prayed for His present disciples and in the processes gave a clear description of His disciples: Those to whom He manifested the Father’s name, who were given to Him by the Father, from out of the world, to receive the Word of God. The main takeaways is to pray for and call people to Jesus, out of the world, according to the Word of God. Please pray that the significance of Jesus' limited prayer scope would be clear, that the nature of the limit would be encouraging, and that we'd be eager to pray like Jesus and share the good news with the world.

Psalm 139:15-16 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. ¹⁶Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there were none of them.

This is the second week that we'll be studying biblical theology during the Sunday School hour (9 am-10am). If you're eager to enhance your understanding and application of the Bible by delving into its themes, these next weeks are tailor-made for you! We'll explore how the themes of Adam, Eve, World, and Eden unfold throughout the Bible, equipping you with a deeper comprehension of its teachings and better prepared for our Bible Survey course. On Sunday, June 30th, we will begin a survey of the Bible--studying an entire book of the Bible each week. Please consider joining us beginning this Sunday! For the summer, the older kids will learn an overview of the Bible with David Oman and the younger kids (3+) will continue their curriculum on God's Promises with Eric and Roxie Lewis. Join us, even if you've never attended!
