Bible Note Quote: "Here I am, like Moses, but much less worthy, on the "backside of the dessert" as it were, and while peering across the apparently barren landscape of my life there is a burning bush that captures my attention and my heart. The fire of the bush corresponds with the fire in my heart and I cannot help but follow... The fire still burns!"
quote from The Fire of God's Word Still Burns! ~ ~ (see former quotes here: Bible Note Quote Archives)

John 17:18-19

John 17:18-19 King James Version (KJV)
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

John 17:18-19 New International Version (NIV)

18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

18 We are to be light bearers of the gospel because He first came into the world shining His light and glory, we are meant to shine His light and share His truth.

19 We are made pure by Christ and as Christians we should be sanctified and this means that God is making us more like Christ then like this world.

we can know good from God's word

Re: John 17:18-19

Welcome, Clark Thompson, to the Bible Notes message board!

I believe in sanctification as both a separation and a purification: separation from the world and unto the Lord, and purification of the heart from all sin (the very sinful nature that we are born with being cleansed from our heart by the blood of Jesus and made a reality by the mighty work of the Holy Spirit).

I DO also believe in growth in grace, but that this happens more readily in a heart that has thus been sanctified entirely. There is always room for more of God's grace and to be more like Jesus.

NOTE: Sorry, for being slow to approve your post. There has not been much posting by others besides me. My other Runboard ID I often use here is OldWarrior.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

And, here I am as OldWarrior. emoticon

I certainly agree that we are to be used of God to carry on the work that Jesus started, spreading His light and His Word throughout the world.

The great qualification for this task Jesus indicated by the following words and similar: "behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high".

"And said unto them, 'Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.' "
(Luke 24:46-49)

"And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but 'wait for the promise of the Father, which,' saith he, 'ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.' "
(Acts 1:4-5)

" 'But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.' "
(Acts 1:8)
