Glorify Your Son

to all You have given Him. This is eternal life:
that they may know You, the only true God,
and the One You have sent—Jesus Christ.read more.
I have glorified You on the earth
by completing the work You gave Me to do. Now, Father, glorify Me in Your presence
with that glory I had with You
before the world existed. I have revealed Your name
to the men You gave Me from the world.
They were Yours, You gave them to Me,
and they have kept Your word. Now they know that all things
You have given to Me are from You, because the words that You gave Me,
I have given them.
They have received them
and have known for certain
that I came from You.
They have believed that You sent Me. I pray for them.
I am not praying for the world
but for those You have given Me,
because they are Yours. Everything I have is Yours,
and everything You have is Mine,
and I have been glorified in them. I am no longer in the world,
but they are in the world,
and I am coming to You.
Holy Father,
protect them by Your name
that You have given Me,
so that they may be one as We are one. While I was with them,
I was protecting them by Your name
that You have given Me.
I guarded them and not one of them is lost,
except the son of destruction,
so that the Scripture may be fulfilled. Now I am coming to You,
and I speak these things in the world
so that they may have My joy completed in them. I have given them Your word.
The world hated them
because they are not of the world,
as I am not of the world. I am not praying
that You take them out of the world
but that You protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world,
as I am not of the world. Sanctifythem by the truth;
Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world,
I also have sent them into the world. I sanctify Myself for them,
so they also may be sanctified by the truth. I pray not only for these,
but also for those who believe in Me
through their message. May they all be one,
as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You.
May they also be one in Us,
so the world may believe You sent Me. I have given them the glory You have given Me.
May they be one as We are one. I am in them and You are in Me.
May they be made completely one,
so the world may know You have sent Me
and have loved them as You have loved Me. Father,
I desire those You have given Me
to be with Me where I am.
Then they will see My glory,
which You have given Me
because You loved Me before the world’s foundation. Righteous Father!
The world has not known You.
However, I have known You,
and these have known that You sent Me. I made Your name known to them
and will make it known,
so the love You have loved Me with
may be in them and I may be in them.

Hebrews 10:19-22

Therefore, brothers, since we have boldness to enter the sanctuary through the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way He has opened for us through the curtain (that is, His flesh), and since we have a great high priest over the house of God,read more.

And this becomes clearer if another priest like Melchizedek appears, who did not become a priest based on a legal command concerning physical descent but based on the power of an indestructible life. For it has been testified:You are a priest forever
