I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as we are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.
Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
O righteous Father! The world has not known You, I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. And I have declared to them your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them. John 17:20-26 NKJV
Jesus is praying for everyone who receives salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
God the Father Jesus and the Holy Spirit existed together in a perfect loving relationship since before time began. God is inviting us into that union. God wants us to be united in the love of Christ. Jesus wants us to love each other. He wants people to see Him in us.
Jesus wants all people to live in a loving relationship with Him. God sent Jesus to reveal Himself to us. Jesus is sending us to reveal Him to people who do not know the Lord. He wants people who do not know Christ to join us in unity with Jesus and love for Him.
We will live in eternal perfection with Jesus one day. God wants us to live in His presence today. He wants us to experience peace that surpasses understanding today. God wants us to experience the abundant life today.
How do we live in the presence of God today? How do we experience peace that surpasses understanding today? How do we experience the abundant life today? We live the life God calls us to live by faith in Jesus!
God wants your love for Him to be seen in the way you love people! Please do not read this message without letting that truth impact how you live!
Loving others is easy for some people. They had loving role models. They learned respect compassion and interpersonal communication skills as they gathered around the dinner table with loved ones.
It is not so easy for some of us. We learned an entirely different skill set in our homes. It has caused an unending stream of anti-social behavior and problematic relationships for some of us. That is not a problem for the Lord of unlimited possibilities!
God can enable all of us to live in unity and loving relationships today, how? Through faith in Jesus. Don’t hide behind a sinful shameful past. Step out in faith today!
Share the love of Jesus with someone who needs to know Jesus today!
