Tereo is the Ancient Greek word for “keep”. In John 17 Jesus is praying to His Father before his arrest. In the prayer he requests many things, but the word “keep” shows itself multiple times. He prays that God “keep” them in His name so that they may be one. He then prays that “I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one.” These prayers reveal to us Jesus desire for our lives. That we pursue God as He leads us towards Himself, and that we are not removed from this world, but remain. We have work to do here on earth. And the word “keep” reminds us of that.
