John 17:15

I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

 

The Lord did not pray that the Father should take believers home immediately. They must be left here to grow in grace and to witness for Christ. But Christ’s prayer was that they might be kept from the evil one, as they fulfill the reason why they have been “left behind”.
