14 Jun John 17:17

17 Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.

This verse is very intimate because of the surrounding circumstances. Jesus knows He is about to be betrayed by Peter, He knows He will go to the cross, yet He’s taking time to pray for the disciples. In verse 17 He expresses future fulfilment for the disciples, that they would continue to be raised up, that they would keep His words in their mouths and tell everyone. Jesus knew what was coming, but He knew the truth of the matter. Many times, in lies, we know the end game, we can see the big picture, but during the moment our vision is still clouded. Next time you find yourself in this place, get away as Jesus did and spend time in prayer, even for those whom have betrayed you.
