Read the sermon text: John 17:1-5

Read the sermon summary: Having taught the disciples in preparing them for life without his physical presence, Jesus turns his words to the Father in prayer. He prays for the Father’s glory, for his own disciples, and then for all his future disciples. In this section of the prayer, Jesus prays that the Father would be glorified in the Son as the Son glorifies him. Glory to the Father will be the result of Jesus accomplishing all the work the Father had given him to do, culminating in the sacrifice of his life for his people (notice Jesus is arrested immediately after this prayer). This is where the glory of God shines brightest in the book of John… Jesus being lifted up as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. In preparation for the sermon consider the following questions: What is the relation to Jesus having “authority over all flesh” and his mission “to give eternal life”? What does Jesus say is eternal life? In light of the answer to the last question, how does Jesus then give eternal life and accomplish the work he had been given? What practical implications for you follow from what Jesus says is eternal life?

Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:  
 
It Is Well With My Soul
When peace like a river
Attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot
Thou hast taught me to say
It is well
It is well with my soul
 
Chorus
It is well with my soul
It is well
It is well with my soul
 
Tho' Satan should buffet
Tho' trials should come
Let this blest assurance control
That Christ hath regarded
My helpless estate
And hath shed His own blood
For my soul
 
My sin O the bliss
Of this glorious tho't
My sin not in part but the whole
Is nailed to the cross
And I bear it no more
Praise the Lord
Praise the Lord O my soul
 
And Lord haste the day
When the faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound
And the Lord shall descend
Even so it is well
With my soul
