With all the pain that the world is going through right now, the message that has been resonating in my heart has been “We are one!”
If we all could understand the true meaning of being ONE, being one in heart, then wouldn’t we all be able to live our lives in complete unity?
In John 17, Jesus prays for all believers – all of us – of every nation, race and people of all differences. He prays that we would understand our unity so that we may all be as one, being one with God, who is perfect LOVE.
John 17:20-23 (NIV)
Jesus prays for all believers
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one – I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
