Engage = to do or take part in something – to give attention to – to enter the battle.

If we are followers of Christ, and Jesus is our example in all things, wouldn’t it be wise to check out His prayer in John 17?

Jesus prayed these words for His followers: Make them ready for your service through your truth; your teaching is truth.” John 17:17 NASB

How is being ready to serve God tied to God’s Word in Jesus’ prayer? Why do you think Jesus prayed this for His followers? What’s the wise thing to do?
