    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.
