“A Peculiar Condition”
Text: John 17:6-19
In the High Priestly Prayer of Jesus, recorded in John 17, we discover that Jesus not only prays for the disciples, but he prays for us as well! In this prayer, we also learn of our peculiar condition–to be in the world but not of it. As subjects in the Kingdom of God, we must be careful of the “Caesars” that would demand our allegiance, and instead make sure that our identity is found in Christ alone.
