Sanctified by Truth

Jesus' priestly heart is revealed in the prayer of John
17. Verses 17-19 say:

'Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I
also sent them into the world. And for their sakes, I
sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified
through the truth.'

Jesus goes on to pray, not for the world, but for those
who were given to him, and they that would believe
because of them. He set Himself apart (sanctified) that
all who believed in Him would also be set apart... from
a world system that refuses Him. I find so much
fellowship in this, and comfort knowing that truth
has the effect of setting us apart. Jesus is that truth.
