PRACTICAL POINTS FOR DISCUSSION:
1. As Christians, we have a relationship with Jesus because God the Father has given us to Him (John 17:6-8).
2. Jesus is glorified in all believers because we belong to both Him and the Father (John 17:9-10).
3. Jesus protected His disciples while He was with them; but now our protection lies with the Father (John 17:11-12).
4. The world hates believers because they hated Jesus (John 17:13-15).
5. Believers are made clean through God’s Word (John 17:16-19).
