“I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. They do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth.” John‬ ‭17:15-17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This was part of a prayer Jesus prayed for all those who belong to Him. It tells us that even tho this world is not our home there is a purpose for us being here. It tells us that there is an evil one working against us that we need protecting from, and it tells us that there is truth that can make us holy (changed to be like Jesus and set apart for God’s plans) that can be found in the Word of God! His Word (the Bible) is so vital to keep us on track, to keep us safe, and to keep us growing into His likeness! No wonder the enemy wants to keep us from it! Lord, as I open Your Word today, would You guide my feet, encourage my heart and protect my mind. Amen 📖🙏🏼
