Homilies about John 17

Jesus Wants Us to Be Like God  Click here Click title to view sermon John 17: 20–26
Summary: The Christian community is to be in unity like the Father and the Son and the Spirit. The key to that unity is love — the love that is God, that God shows for us and that we are to have for one another. For the church to be a loving community is a way of reaching out to the world. The church, imperfect in its love, is still under the cross as it lives in the hope of resurrection.

World–Situated, Christ–Defined  Click here Click title to view sermon John 17: 6–19
John 17: 11–19 for LFM
Summary: Most of us who follow Jesus nonetheless feel the tug of the world, calling us to make its values, not God’s, the place on which we stand. But when we work at the spiritual disciplines and invite Christ into the very center of our lives, our predominant experience is that of joy, peace, spiritual power and a sense of sufficiency.

God’s T–Shirt  Click here Click title to view sermon John 17: 20–26
Summary: The first-century faithful were diverse religiously, ethnically and culturally, but they found unity believing in a suffering Messiah through whom God dwelt in their midst, who on their behalf brought that suffering home to God. Our unity is also found in the suffering Messiah, whom we share with all branches of our faith.

Glory  Click here Click title to view sermon John 17: 1–11
Summary: If we ever lose God’s Glory, we will have lost everything, for Glory is what prevents life from being an endless blur of meaninglessness or hopelessness. God’s Glory is what lifts us out of the depths of despair and takes us to the heights of appreciation. God’s Glory reassures us that God is good and that his mercy is everlasting. Glory reminds us that God’s love comes to us fresh each day like the rising of the sun. And Glory is God’s love that blesses us with a benediction like the blaze of sunset when we come to the end of our life’s day.

Famous Last Words!  Click here Click title to view sermon John 17: 6–19
Summary: In Jesus’ “last will and testament” he spoke of what had been done, what was left to do and what he came to do. He has left much of what is still to be done to us. This is our inheritance and our treasure. But it is also ours to do. This inheritance is a life work, a grand purpose. We are set aside to tell the world the story of Jesus and his gift.

Praying for the Impossible  Click here Click title to view sermon John 17: 20–26
Summary: If we believe that possibilities are limited and that boundaries are set, then praying for the impossible makes no sense. But if we believe in God’s power, love and goodness, then our prayer may be cooperation with his will. It may even be that our prayer, which is a new element in the situation, will be part of the means by which God’s will is done.

A Prayer for Dangerous Disciples  Click here Click title to view sermon John 17: 11–19
Summary: In John 17, Jesus prays for his disciples. He asks God to protect and sanctify them as they engage the world in a daring mission to demonstrate God’s love to a world that has not yet experienced it. He prays the same for us.
