I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their thought. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.
John 17: 20-21 (NLT)
This was more than a prayer Jesus prayed. It was His mission statement. His goal was to spread the thought that there was a loving God that had salvation for all people, to all ends of the earth. He knew that this would only happen if we worked together. It is through the oneness of purpose and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit that we can spread His message to all the ends of the earth. In his book, “The Deeper Journey” M. Robert Mulholland Jr. writes, “Union with God results in our being a person through whom God’s presence touches the world with forgiving, cleansing, healing, liberating and transforming grace. – The world will not believe in Christ because of our sound theology, our correct Creed, our well-defined dogma, our rigorous religiosity. The world will believe when it sees Christlikeness manifested in our life.” Today, might we commit our self to be a more effective witness for Christ through our unity, faith, and love.
Father, help me live for You. Help me join other believers in a deeply loving relationship, so together, we will be a witness of Your love, grace, and truth.
