Let me first share a revelation that almost caused me to drive off the side of a mountain in West Virginia. I was headed home after a preaching engagement. About midnight, I was meditating on John 17. That chapter is a record of the intercessory prayer Jesus prayed for the church just before He went to the cross.

The Messiah said, “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word” (v. 20). That includes us. That reaches all the way up to our generation nearly two millennia later. Then He said to the Father:

“The glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me” (vv. 22-23, NKJV).

It hit me like spiritual lightning, “He wanted the world to know … But we don’t even realize this yet.”
