One Through the Word (John 17:11-19)

Sermons JohnOn Sunday, June 5, 2016, Pastor Joe Troutman preached “One through the Word” from John 17:11-19.

And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one. While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. But now I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth.

Jesus Christ unifies us, he secures us, he sanctifies us, and he sends us out by his word.

1. The Word Secures
2. The Word Sanctifies
3. The Word Sends
