The Disciples’ Prayer Series – Part 1
- Three letters.
- One syllable.
- A world of meaning.
If there is one thing for certain about Jesus’ desire for his church, it is that we would live, work, and love in oneness.
As a matter of fact, Jesus prayed that we would be one in the same way that He and His Father are one. Wow!
John 17:11, 21 (NIV) 11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name–the name you gave me–so that they may be one as we are one…
21 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.
So, what would that look like? What would it mean for our daily life? How would it affect our lives individually and as a community of believers? How does it affect God?
In the attached lesson above I seek to answer these questions, and I discuss what the Bible says about how we achieve this unity. You can read the notes and listen to the teaching. I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
