Monday – Gospels
Reading – John 17
“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 17:21 NLT
What does it mean to be one?
Does it mean that we all agree on everything?
I don’t think Jesus would realistically pray for that.
But it can be said that we all have one Father – God.
We can also be one in purpose – that the world will believe God sent Jesus.
Finally, we can be one in our love for Jesus (v24).
It was that united love and purpose that first brought me to Jesus. How many more can come to this life of faith if we only fulfill the prayer of Jesus here?
Do you believe that you are united with other believers?
What can we do to foster that perfect unity of believers?
