"One in Christ Jesus"

“One in Christ Jesus”


I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in Me through their message.  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.  And may they be in Us so that the world will believe You sent Me.        John 17:20-21


These verses of Scripture are part of a prayer that was offered up to God, by His Son, Jesus Christ, prior to His arrest and death.  It is amazing to me to think that He prayed not only for His disciples, who actually walked, talked and lived with Him in the flesh, but also for EVERY believer that has come after them, they, my dear brothers and sisters, are us.


I think that the majority of His prayer was for UNITY among ALL believers everywhere.  That we should be ONE as He and the Holy Father are ONE.  There is nothing Satan would like better than for there to be division among God’s Children, because a house divided will fall.  And a body that is divided will be weak and vulnerable to him and his dastardly deeds. 


We as God’s Children must come together as ONE and love, support and pray for each other.  Satan is the one who brings jealously, envy, and strife into the Family of God, when we let him influence us.  Then we become weak and ineffective to a lost and dying world.  Our witness to the lost is also of no effect, and the mission we are given by Christ, to win the lost, takes a hard blow.    We must be ever vigilant and strong in our faith, and come together in order to be the influence this tired, miserable, lost, and dying world needs.  Time is running out and we need to work together for the good of the Kingdom of God.  I want you, who are TRUE believers in Christ, to know that I am praying for you, wherever you may be.  God knows who you are and what you are going through, so just know that there is someone praying for you.


If you are reading this and have not given your HEART to God, and are not part of His Family, but are living for Satan, and if you’re NOT living for God, you ARE living for Satan, even if you think you are not, you ARE.  If you are against God, then there is only one other force that can influence you and that is Satan.  Those who are living for Satan, are headed for an eternity in that place called Hell.  A place of misery, torment, and pain, the likes of which, are not known.  But you have the opportunity NOW to change your course and become a part of God’s family, by:  Confessing your sins to God and asking Him for His forgiveness, believing, with ALL your Heart, that Jesus died for YOU, and is alive in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then accept His gift of salvation, and help win the lost to Christ.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
