I Want...

John 17 is the longest recorded prayer of Jesus.  In it he prays for himself, for his disciples, and for all who would eventually believe in him.  There is, of course, plenty of meat to digest in a chapter like this.  But today I particularly gravitate toward this simple statement:


“Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory….”  (John 17:24a).


What does this tell us about the nature of God?
