That They May Be One – John 17:20-23
Jesus prayed for all believers to be joined together with God and that His people might be unified. Just as God is one, in complete agreement, so the church must continually strive to be one in purpose, in mission, in truth, and in love. In this sermon Pastor David ask how we can preserve the unity Jesus prayed for.
“I do not ask for these only,
but also for those who will believe in Me through their word,
21 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.
22 The glory that You have given Me I have given to them,
that they may be one even as We are one,
23 I in them and You in Me, that they may become perfectly one,
so that the world may know that You sent Me
and loved them even as You loved Me. (John 17:20-23)
