Today's Message: Our Father | Dr. John Harris
John 17:1-6 CSB
1 Jesus spoke these things, looked up to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son so that the Son may glorify you,
2 since you gave him authority over all people, so that he may give eternal life to everyone you have given him.
3 This is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and the one you have sent —Jesus Christ.
4 I have glorified you on the earth by completing the work you gave me to do.
5 Now, Father, glorify me in your presence with that glory I had with you before the world existed.
6 “I have revealed your name to the people you gave me from the world. They were yours, you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.
John 17:25-26 CSB
25 Righteous Father, the world has not known you. However, I have known you, and they have known that you sent me.
26 I made your name known to them and will continue to make it known, so that the love you have loved me with may be in them and I may be in them.”
Matthew 6:9-10 CSB
9 “Therefore, you should pray like this: Our Father in heaven, your name be honored as holy. 10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

From a letter to Dr. Cornelius VanDyke...
A souvenir to the esteemed spiritual physician and religious philosopher, his Excellency, the only and most learned who has no second in his age, Dr. Cornelius VanDyke, the American. As a souvenir presented to his loftiness and goodness and to him that is above titles, who is a propagator of knowledge and the founder of perfections, and a possessor of high qualities and owner of praiseworthy character, the pole of the firmament of virtues and the pivot of the circle of sciences, the author of splendid works and firm foundations, who is well versed in the understanding of the inner realities of soul and horizons, who deserves that his name be written with light upon the eyes of the people rather with gold on paper, at Beirut, in the month of Rabia, in the year 1891, by the most humble.
