Christians should strive to see Jesus Christ’s vision for us fulfilled.
Introducing the Study
How can you know what God's plan is for your life? This a question almost every Christian asks, even though it can be difficult to answer. One way we might look at he question is to ask ourselves, "What does Jesus say in His prayers to the Father on our behalf?"
John 17 is a chapter of Scripture often referred to as Jesus' "High Priestly Prayer." Jesus prayed for Himself as He looked ahead to His suffering and death on the cross. He also prayed for His disciples and for future followers who would believe in Him. Jesus' vision for His followers comes through in this prayer. As Christians, we should desire to see that vision fulfilled.
John 14: 1-26
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world (KJV).
