Topic: Biblical Passage: John 17:17–17:26

John 17:17-26


Bottom Line Up Front:

  • John 17:18


  • Origin of the term "mission": from Latin missio(n-), from mitere 'send.'
  • Just as I have SENT them...




“To be in mission is to be living for a cause that’s more important than your own comfort in life, so that you’re willing to sacrifice. It’s to live your life for a cause that you sacrifice your needs and conveniences for, because the cause is more important than yourself.” - Tim Keller


He begins the upper room discourse by stating His mission...Namely to put God's glorious LOVE on display!

  • John 14:30-31


He ends praying for putting God's glorious LOVE on display

  • John 17:24


Paul catches the MISSION

  • Ephesians 1:4-6
  • Ephesians 3:14, 18-19
