People's Bible Notes for John 17:19


Joh 17:19 For their sakes I sanctify myself. He did this when he came into the world, when he made it his meat to do the Father's will, and when he gave himself to death. We sanctify ourselves when we "present our bodies as living sacrifice" (Ro 12:1).

    JOHN 17:19 AND FOR THIER SAKES I SANCTIFY MYSELF THAT THEY ALSO MIGHT BE SANCTIFIED THROUGH THE TRUTH *** HEBREWS 2:11 FOR BOTH HE THAT SANCTIFIETH AND THEY WHO ARE SANCTIFIED ARE ALL OF ONE FOR WHICH CAUSE HE IS NOT ASHAMED TO CALL THEM BRETHREN *** HEBREWS 13:12 WHEREFORE JESUS ALSO THAT HE MIGHT SANCTIFY THE PEOPLE WITH HIS OWN BLOOD SUFFERED WITHOUT THE GATE ***

    The Most wonderful prayer in the whole bible. God wants people who are going to : Fear, Obey, Believe and be Faithful to Jesus. Period!

    Ephesians 4:18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: We must look in to our hearts and find what's there. God can see our hearts, we will before him confess the Jesus is God. Love Love Love

    Janet; Ignorance mostly because we are raised in a society where ignorance and the heathen bullies those who are better than them, and so good and smart children with great potential are subdued by fear, because they want to be accepted and fit in. How many are the tragedies of beautiful children lost to drugs and a life characterized by self-indulgence and moral corruption and spiritual laziness!
  • Janet
    Disciple, you are right about your comment on Reg. Some do it out of ignorance but some laziness. Even human beings names are not spelt with small letters.
  • Ray321
    John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. People today don't know who Jesus is. Jesus is God.
