“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 17:4-5
Dear Jesus, I love seeing you pray these words because I have so much unfinished business and so many unchangeable mistakes and sins from the past. You finished everything well for our Father in my place. You are the best big brother that anyone could ever hope to have. You did everything needed to keep me in your family. Since I am a deeply loved child of God through faith in you, I will do everything I can to extend mercy to people around me just as you do. Without worry over what I do not finish, I will do my best to finish the right things with my remaining days and strength. AMEN
Every moment of Jesus' life was lived for you and not himself. Show him how grateful you are by returning the favor.
