Guest post by Dustin Shramek John 17:20-23 20 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.
How we do life together affects whether the world believes the Father sent Jesus Christ (v. 21). How we do life together affects whether the world knows God’s love for us, namely the love he has for the Son (v. 23).
Believing God sent Jesus Christ. Knowing God’s love for his Son as seen in his love for his people. Those are massive reasons for taking care in how we do life together.
Thank you Lord Jesus for praying for us!
