John 17:20 “I pray also for those who will believe in Me through their message…”

A phrase I heard this morning had me thinking. It was, “You become what you behold.” Now for me, the simple answer to this was, “I want to become more like Jesus…so to do this I need to behold Him more.” If I want to change my attitude, I need to observe how Jesus treated people. If I want to grow spiritually, I need to be in the Bible daily, seeing how Jesus ministered to the unlovely, the orphan,& the widow. And if I want to be transformed, I need to regard Jesus as my Lord & Savior. Finally, if I truly want to turn my life around, I need to pray as Jesus prayed for Believers who would be born & come to faith in future ages. In John 17: 20-26, Jesus prays for whose who’ll believe in Him through the sharing of the Good News of the Gospel Message. Which means, if I’m not already sharing the Gospel with others, I need to be. Jesus prayed that the world would come to believe that God sent Him to earth to save mankind…again, I need to be telling people about Jesus. He also prayed that we may be one with Him, as He is one with the Father, and by this brought to complete unity as Believers in order to show the world His love…in other words, I need to show a unity & love in me that’s so visible to the world that it’s automatically drawn to Jesus.
