Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you. For I have given them the words that you gave me, andthey have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me.I am praying for them.I am not praying for the world butfor those whom you have given me, for they are yours.
"Have received," "have come to know," "have believed"; all part of the faith cycle; all part of forming an intimate relationship with the LORD, God, the Almighty. And as the Holy Seal of Approval, we are brought into a very select circle; those for whom our Lord Jesus Christ is standing at the right hand of the LORD, presenting us continually in prayer.
Just think about this. How awesome! The Son of God is presenting His own--us, continuously to the Trinity. Hear His soul-thrilling assurance, "Trust Us, We've got you covered."
