What Does Jesus Want Most for You?

by | Faith and Reason | 2 comments

When departing those we love, the last thing we say is usually the most important.

What were Jesus’ last words for us?

The answer to this question is found in Jesus’ final prayer to his Father for us. In it he makes several requests, but the last one is this:

Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. (John 17:24)

Jesus’ final request and his greatest desire for us is to see his glory.

Why is this? What’s the reason behind why Jesus wants this for us?

In this week’s episode, Scott dives into this question to help us understand the bigger topic of God’s glory:

  • Who is God – and who was he before he created the world?
  • Why does God desire anything?
  • What does Jesus’ desire for us to see his glory ultimately reveal about the essence of God’s identity and the greatest thing we can know about God?

    if we draw a horizontal line, everything below that line man can do and he gets the glory, everything above that line, only God can do and He gets the glory.

    I was a pastor for twenty-five years and left because I couldn’t find one verse that supported it. There were no churches, no pastors, no divisions, they had agape love, supported one another, they had community, unity and in every city, they were one. ekklesia means the called-out saints of every city, poimen meant the shepherds of that city. Acts 2:44-47
    All who believed were together, and had all things in common. 45 They sold their possessions and goods, and distributed them to all, according as anyone had need. 46 Day by day, continuing steadfastly with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread at home, they took their food with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 praising God, and having favor with all the people. The Lord added to the assembly day by day those who were being saved.
    Ephesians 4:15-16 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head — Christ — 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
