In The World No Longer-John 17.11

John 17:11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name—the name you gave me—so that they may be one as we are one.
I have been spending a lot of time in this one verse. It is packed with all kinds of truths and views. I love the thought that I will not remain in this world but will go to another place. I love the idea that I will go to the Father. I often wonder, what it would have felt like to live with no hope or no idea of the future. I am glad for a world view that speaks of this world and the hope of a world to come. Are you glad you will not remain in this world? Are you looking forward to going to the Father? I am!
