Jesus is On Display in You

For the message you gave me, I gave them; And they took it, and were convinced That I came from you. They believed that you sent me. I pray for them. I’m not praying for the God-rejecting world But for those you gave me, For they are yours by right. Everything mine is yours, and yours mine, And my life is on display in them.
— John 17:8-10

Receive this prayer that Jesus prayed for those that His Holy Father gave Him. You were one of God's treasures before you came in your earth suit to be entrusted in the care of Jesus. God gave Jesus to you. Pause and just imagine that for a moment... Before you belonged to your parents, your mate, your children, your best friend in the whole wide world, before anyone first laid eyes upon you, you belonged to God.

You were God's first and you still are. He spoke to you first before your parents cooed all over you. And then He gave you to Jesus "the Word of God" that has taught you the nature and ways of your Holy Father. It was Jesus who knew His Father perfectly and desired to teach you what to believe. He wanted you to know what to say in His name, who to trust, how to live and continue in His work while you are still in the world, what to place your faith in and what to beware of.

Jesus didn't and still doesn't want you to miss out on all the good that the Father offers you. He gave you the same message that the Father gave Him. And for us who will take the time to listen to His Words and believe them we will be convinced by His Words that will lead us to truth, hope and life.

Jesus is praying for you now in this moment that you will realize and be fully persuaded that His life is on display in you and that you belong to God. There is no need to work for His life, just receive His life today and show others what Jesus has taught you by your actions of love, so that He may be glorified in you and them too.

Decree It: I belong to You Father God and I belong to Jesus. I was Yours first before anyone saw me, knew me, hurt or rejected me. I receive the teachings of Jesus about You and Your blessings as My Father. Thank you Jesus for praying for me today and everyday and reminding me of who I am and who I belong to. My life is on display, be glorified in me.
