Jesus wants: God to keep me & Me to know God
Zechariah 7-9/John 17-21
7:6 And even now in your holy festivals, you don’t think about me but only of pleasing yourselves.
9:9 Rejoice greatly, O people of Zion! Shout in triumph, O people of Jerusalem! Look, your king is coming to you. He is righteous and victorious, yet he is humble, riding on a donkey – even on donkey’s colt.
17:3 And this is the way to have eternal life – to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.
:15 I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one.
OT Flash Points
Rejoice! Your king is coming, riding on… a donkey’s colt?
When was this written? [look it up]
NT Flash Points
“Keep those You have given Me”
Can you personally trust God to keep you safe?
Is God hard?
No – more tender than we can imagine
Now, THERE’S something to imagine!
The Sword of God, Jesus, is sent to sever us from all ties that will kill us
The question is, Will you cooperate with Him?
