1. Jesus‘ first concern was for the glory of the Father and the Son: „FatherGlorify Your Son, that Your Son may glorify You.“ (John 17:1; also verses 5, 10, 24)

Therefore, everything we do in the ministry must focus on Him rather than us. (Galatians 6:14)

2. Jesus appropriated His God-given authority in order to do the ministry: „For You granted [Christ] authority over all people… “ (John 17:2)

Therefore, as sent ones, we must not be deterred by the fear or opposition of man. (John 20:21; Proverbs 29:25)

3. Jesus was given men as a gift from the Father: „I have revealed You to those whom You gave Me out of the world. They were Yours; You gave them to Me… “ (John 17:6; also verse 2)

Therefore, we are to prayerfully ask God to give us the people whom we are to disciple.
