On the night before His crucifixion, Jesus prayed with such sweetness. His words bring comfort to all who reads them in John chapter 17. We belong to Jesus; He is our keeper.
Jesus, Our Keeper
While only a few can say they spent time with Jesus and knew Him, He knows every one of His followers by name. (Isaiah 43:1-2, John 10:3) That very night, in the garden, Jesus prayed for you and me. (John 17:20)
While Jesus was here, He guarded and kept His own. Today, He is in Heaven still guarding and keeping us. Satan, the enemy who captured and controlled Judas wants to separate us from Jesus. He will do anything he can to bring that separation about, but thankfully we have the unfailing promise of being kept in perfect peace. (Isaiah 26:3).
Even though Jesus is guarding us, we need to be aware of those little cute things that seem innocent enough. All it takes is a little crack to crumble the wall of protection. No matter what we allow to happen in our lives, Jesus loves us just the same. (Romans 5:8, John 3:16, I John 4:10)
The ever watchful eye of Jesus is on us. His lovingly guiding hand is helping us along the way. We never have to fear Him leaving us (Hebrews 13:5) The Lord is our Keeper!
