John 17:17 - “Sanctify them in truth, your word is truth.”
Jesus, in your parting prayer, you pray for us to be sanctified, set apart for God, by God’s word. This was so important to you that you included it in your last extended prayer on earth. I pray it would be just as important to us.
Give us a hunger to hear, read, study, memorize, and meditate on the word of God. Open our eyes to see the beauty of your word in how it all points to you, Christ. Give us willing hearts to obey whatever we read. We pray that the word would have its full effect in us: setting us apart for you and your purposes. Freeing us from us and letting us walk alive together with you.
