John 17:22-23 “And that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.”
These words of Jesus are very comforting to me. They convey the unity between the and assure us that the Father loves us just as much as does Jesus.
Jesus asked us to address our prayers to the Father and as we know Jesus, we can know the Father.
The Father has every reason to hate me and I have every reason to love Him. My sins caused Jesus to suffer on the Cross, but the Father forgives and forgets. He offers grace through Jesus Christ.
I praise God, including the Father, from whom all blessings flow.
Please add your comments to this thought at the bottom of this post so others can be blessed through your words also.
You and I can benefit much from studying the life of Jesus. It will give us the same power from the Father that He received. Power that will slowly change our desires to be more pure. Power that will slowly help us to dislike sinful things. When our desires and “likes” change we can be used by God as a sweet aroma to help others.
Salvation is a one-to-one affair. Family or church worship isn’t enough to form and grow a relationship with God.
So, join me and spend time with God. Spiritual Exercises are fun, You’ll love it!

If Jesus spent all night in prayer then why do we think we need so little?
Jesus would arise early in the morning and go outside and find a place of seclusion to pray. He spent time with the Father and received strength. It allowed Him to resist temptation. It allowed Him to succeed in His mission.
