Preacher: Jon Coyne


Scholars will argue forever about whether Jesus is only asking God to protect the 11 disciples, or a larger group, or all who believe in Jesus. We may not be able to come to a final decision on that question, but we can look at the fact that Jesus protects people from Satan while he is on earth. Additionally, Jesus asks God to continue to protect people when he leave earth. In fact, Jesus states he makes people holy. Jesus further prays for the unity of those who follow him. Love unites, God protects. Truly God is our fortress and strength.
