I Am “One” With You Jesus

Did you know that you’re specifically mentioned in the Bible? It’s right here as Jesus prays for every person who would ever believe in the message shown by His first followers. That message was the Gospel, the good news that God has covered man’s sins because of Jesus’ death on the cross. If you’re someone who believes this, then you’re just as much in this verse as anyone.

But let’s take it a step further. Let’s see what Jesus had to say about you:

“I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one-as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. (John 17:21 NLT)

When Jesus prayed for you, and everyone else who would believe the gospel, Jesus prayed that we would all be one. Stop and consider this. Christ could have prayed for any number of things, but He put unity at the top of His list.

Not only that, He also adds that this “oneness” is to reflect the harmonious unity that exists between Him and His Father. A lifetime can be spent probing how profound this is. But for our purposes, let’s shrink it down to one simple take-away truth that we can all agree on: It’s important for us to be “one with one another.”
