John 17: 24 Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. (NASB)
Have you ever said those words to your spouse or to your kids? Sometimes it turns to a game of words starting with “I love you.” So let me ask you, have you ever told God you love him? Do you know what his answer would be? Do you know much he loves you? You should.
God loves us so much that before he departed from this earth He prayed for us. He interceded to the father for us. He was going to be absent for a little while, but He was not going to abandon us. He prayed that all of us could make it to Him. He loved us so much that He remembered to mention us before the father. How important is that. From that verse I have learned that when I love someone so much, I need to pray for them. I need to bring their name to the father, because I’m not there to do something personally. If I want to show someone that I love them, I need to pray for them! Pray for those you love.
