Jesus said, “I have given them your word”

John 17:14

What a wonderful legacy we have from the Lord, God’s word! Jesus went on to ask his Father to, ‘sanctify them in the truth: your word is truth.’ (v17) Earlier in the Upper Room he had told his disciples, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life’ (14:6). Now he was cementing these facts in his prayer. As Paul reminds his readers, you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.’ (1 Cor.6:11) How wonderfully reassuring to be sanctified in the truth!
