Pursing More of Jesus in this last week of study, we seek More of His Glory as we study the Gospel of John, chapter seventeen. Under the leadership of Anne Graham Lotz, we’ve learned how to:
- Pursue More of His Voice (Week One)
- Pursue More of His Courage (Week Two)
- Pursue More of His Spirit (Week Three)
Without doubt, we’ve learned more about Jesus than we knew before starting this inductive Bible study. As Anne mentions in video Seminar Three, “It’s the Holy Spirit’s priority to get you into the word and have it permeate your life so you live by it.” She also reminds us to pray before we study, asking the Holy Spirit to give us the mind of Christ. As you begin this week’s study, ask Jesus to draw you near him.

Today’s Scripture Verse
After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: “Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. 5And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began. John 17:1-5 (NIV)
Jesus, draw us near and guide us through the Gospel of John as we pursue more of you glory. Fill our hearts with the holy spirit and empower our minds with the truth of your word. Bring the holy spirit into our souls as we mature in the Christian faith. May our thoughts, actions and words be pleasing to Father God. Amen.
