After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed:
“Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began. John 17:1-5
Jesus is in a moment of pure clarity before a flood of emotion, and physical suffering.
The result and purpose of His glorification is our salvation
“Sin is seeking to become oneself, to get an identity apart from God.” –Soren Kierkegaard
When Christ is glorified everything becomes better.
““Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.” That was his goal that they, we would know him and his love for us. John 17:24-25
As we’re committed to seeing better lives and a better city we know the only way to do that is if Jesus is at the center of everything.
We’re committed to seeing Jesus glorified.
