Questions for Personal and Small Group Considerations on the Sunday Gospel Reading (John 17:20-26) taken from the Serendipity Bible:
Who is the focus of Jesus’ prayer in verses 20-26? Toward what end? What kind of unity exists between Jesus and God that we should copy?
What does Jesus’ ultimate desire (v. 24) reveal about his love for us?
How do verses 25-26 sum up the major concerns of Jesus in chapters 13-16?
This week, whom have you glorified by the way you lived? How so?
How are your prayers for others like and unlike Jesus’ prayer? Do your prayers reflect the short-term or the long-term important needs that people have? What can you apply to your prayer skills from this chapter?
How does the fact that Jesus existed before the world began affect the way you live?
How important to you is unity with other believers? With whom do you share this unity? How can you experience more unity?
