Discussion for John 17:23

  • LORRAINE on John 17:23
    I think it is the most tremendous truth of God 's relationship to those who believe in His Son. This is the Scripture God used to draw me unto Himself and I became His child. When I first read it I prayed to God with tears in my eyes and from my heart that I wanted this relationship. Amazing God! Amazing love!
