Scripture: John 17

Thump. Thump. Thump. My neighbor, Dennis, would see me doing house projects and throw tools over the fence which landed in my lawn with a characteristic “Thump!” He did this because he knew what I needed before I did. Similarly, God knows what we need before we do. So it should give us great joy and peace when Jesus prays for us. Jesus metaphorically throws items into the yard of our lives because he knows what we need!

Questions to consider:

  • Is your peace, amidst trouble, in Christ?
  • Do you recognize your need to find protection in his name?
  • Do you trust Jesus when he says we need each other?
