The time for Christ to be glorified had come: He had lived in perfect obedience, He had loved the lost, and on the cross He would triumph over evil. John 17 describes the moment that all of history had been leading up to—the moment when God gave us the gift of eternal life in Jesus. Alistair Begg encourages us to accept God’s gift of eternal life and share the news of it with others.
1When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, 2since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. 3And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. 4I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. 5And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.
