“I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me."John 17:20-21 (ESV)
Christ Jesus is praying for us, His followers of the 21st century, to be one, for unity. Why? So that the world, people outside the church, may believe in Him. If we are not unified, in one accord, but in discord, we are not proclaiming a Gospel that is believable. The proof of our Christianity is our oneness but we can't agree. What are we to do, while a world s going to hell?
Abba Father, I want to be one who unites not divides. Let me love others with a love of Jesus. Let me not be judgmental and condemning but uplifting and caring with a compassionate heart.- Amen!
