[My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day…“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” (John 10:27)
[Jesus said this to His disciples and of course tells us the same thing today!]
“Even if you had ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I BECAME YOUR FATHER THROUGH THE GOSPEL. So I’m asking you to follow my example.” (1 Corin. 4:15-16)
[The Corinthians became Christians under Paul’s ministry. He laid the foundation of a church among them. Others could only build upon it. Whatever other teachers they had, HE WAS THEIR SPIRITUAL FATHER.]
“I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, PROTECT THEM by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that THEY MAY BE ONE AS WE ARE ONE.” (John 17:11)
[We must learn to humble ourselves and trust the mighty hand of God and allow God to help us to continue to follow Jesus:]
HOLY FATHER, PROTECT THEM BY THE POWER OF YOUR NAME!
Notice: […We must understand that the bible says:] “Holy Father, PROTECT THEM by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that THEY MAY BE ONE AS WE ARE ONE.”!!!] That’s for you: Stephanie, Ethan, Camden, Olivia, Aidan, Landon, Kinsley, Annika and Kaleigh
