There has never been a great example of oneness than that of Jesus and His Father God. As Jesus prepared to face the cross, He prayed a great prayer. In this passage, He asked that not only His disciples but that all believers—that’s us—would be one as He and his Father were one. His hope was that this would serve as a testimony to the world that He was sent from God. Such unity in the body can’t happen when unforgiveness walls us off from one another.
1. How does it make you feel to realize that Jesus prayed for your personal spiritual life?
2. How would you describe the concept of unity among believers that Jesus prayed for? What would that look like?
Challenge: I remember sitting around the campfire as a scout and singing “They will know we are Christians by our Love.” Who are they? And do they know we are Christians by our love? Today pray for unity in the church. Not just Hillcrest but the church universal. We need to show them our love.
