Sent, Yet Separate

Text: John 17:1-19
Rev. Paul Karlberg

In this final gathering of Jesus with his disciples before his passion, He wrestles with His Father in prayer on their behalf and, by extension, on ours. Note that He does not ask for us to be taken out of the world but rather be sent into it, while at the same time being kept separate from evil in the world.
