This sermon examines the Lord's Prayer for the Elect as recorded in John 17. Note John 17:9, "I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine." (Joh 17:9 AV) The teaching provides us will additional insight into the Theology and Christology of God and Christ. Theology and Christology studies the relationships and origins in the God family and shows the relationship of God and Christ with those whom God has called out of this world to know God and Christ. This prayer shows the great love that the Father and Christ have for each person who has been begotten by God.
