Once more here is a link to the Scripture passage –

VI.
Jesus mentions several groups and to that he adds some information regarding them.

What do you make of –

“given them your word …”

“the world has hated …”

“belong not to the world …”

“protect them from the evil [one] …”

“Sanctify them …”

“Sanctify them in truth …”

“sent me/them into the world …”

“sanctified in truth …”

“on behalf of those who will believe …”

“that they all my be one …”

“you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us …”

“glory that you have given me I have given them …”

“completely one …”

There’s more!

VII.
Maybe you can find some time to reflect on these several ideas.

And please, don’t just “think” about this in the abstract, but consider how you are included in all this – how do you participate?
