Pink on the High Priestly Prayer


I am thoroughly enjoying John 17. I love this statement from A.W. Pink concerning this prayer of our Lord Jesus:


“The prayer we are now about to meditate upon is a standing monument of Christ’s affection for the Church. In it we are permitted to hear the desires of His heart as He spreads them before the Father, seeking the temporal, spiritual and eternal welfare of those who are His own. This prayer did not pass away as soon as its words were uttered, or when Christ ascended to heaven, but retains a perpetual efficacy.”

Tony,

The last paragraph or your final point of your sermon yesterday, February 22, summed up eloquently a long held belief of mine is it possible for you to reprint it on this post? Praise God for your Pastoral guidance to your flock. These last two weeks of preparing our hearts and minds of God’s Amazing Grace through His Son Jesus Christ who's High Priestly Prayer of John 17 gives me the Peace of God as is written.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I have heard great things about these past two very powerful sermons from Brother Gary. I promise to listen to them over our CCB before this Lord’s Day.
