John 17:13 "But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 "I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 "I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. 16 "They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 ¶ "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 18 "As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 "And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.

Jesus has spoken many things so we can have His joy complete in our life. We are also told how we have the Father’s word and because of that we will be hated because we are not like the world. He prays for us not to be taken out of the world, but that we will be protected while we are here. Our job is not to get saved and leave, but we are to share God’s word with others. He also is praying that we will be Holy and separate from the world because we have been transformed by the Word we have read and absorbed into our life. He also sends us as He was sent and has set Himself apart as completely holy so that we can be that way too.
