We Are a Gift to the Son
John 17:2 Even as You
have given Him
[Jesus, the Son]
authority over all flesh to give eternal life to all whom You have given Him. (6) I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world. They were Yours, and You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.
Words of Ministry
The Father has given the Son authority over all flesh, over
all mankind. All mankind is under the authority of the Son
because the Father has entrusted Him with this authority. By
a careful reading of this verse, we can see that the Lord has
authority to rule over all mankind in order to give eternal
life to that part of mankind which the Father has chosen and
given to the Lord.
Do not just think of yourself as a poor, pitiful sinner. In a
sense, you are, but, in another sense, you are a gift to the
Son. You need to say, "Praise the Triune God that I
am a precious gift whom the Father gave the Son. I am dear,
precious, good, high, and even lovely. I am a gift, not a
trash can. The Father would never give a trash can to His
Son. As one who has been given to God's dear Son, I am
precious, dear, lovely, and sweet." If you have seen this,
your view, attitude, and concept will all be changed, not
only concerning yourself but also concerning all the saints
. Do you believe that all the dear brothers and sisters are gifts to the Son? Do you believe that the one whom you do not like is such a gift? If you have seen this, you will love every saint, because every dear saint is a gift selected by the Father and given to the Son.
