Jesus prays to His Father in Heaven….

“Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.  O, righteous Father, even the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me.  I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.”  John 17:24-26

* * * * *

As believers, we are indelibly linked to those first disciples who knew Jesus first hand, who heard His words–words given to Him by His Father in Heaven–and believed!

* * * * *

And His love received from His Father flowed from Christ to His disciples–and flows down to us today.  We are linked to one another in that same love no matter what denomination or church affiliation –we are all united into Christ through His Word, His Love.

* * * * *

The world cannot see this large, holy temple of the living God surrounding the globe with faithful hearts and praise, who confesses that Jesus Christ is Lord of all, but it can see you and me.  May we show the love of God today!

* * * * *

God grant protection and strength to Your Holy temple of living stones this day.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Church of God, elect and glorious

Holy nation, chosen race;

Called as God’s own special people,

Royal priests and heirs of grace:

Know the purpose of your calling

Show to all His mighty deeds;

Tell of love that knows no limits

Grace that meets all human needs.

* * * * *

Church of God, elect and holy,

Be the people He intends;

Strong in faith and swift to answer

Each command your Master sends:

Royal priests, fulfill your calling

Through your sacrifice and prayer;

Give your lives in joyful service–

Sing His praise, His love declare.

~James E. Seddon
