THOSE WHO ARE GIVEN TO THE SON

"I have manifested your name to the people whom you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word" (John 17:6, ESV).

There are "people whom you (the Father) gave me (the Son) out of the world."

What a great privilege to be among those people!

Jesus Christ manifested the Father to them (also in verse 28). And they are enabled to keep God's Word. He gave them the Word, they received them, enabled to know the truth and they believed in Jesus (verse 8).

Christ has been praying for them (verse 9; Romans 8:34). Glory is given to them (verse 22). And the Son desires that they may be where He is to behold His glory (24)!

"Yet I will
rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy
in the God of my salvation"
(Habakkuk 3:18, ESV).
