John 17

Daily Devotional from John 17--

Verse 11
Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.
Jesus prays for us that we would be one, just as the Father, Son and Spirit are one. We call this phenomenon the Trinity—a divine diversity found in unity. And if you were to take a peek inside the Trinity, do you know what you would find? You would discover a harmonious, giving, and non-competitive environment where love reigns. And this, my friends, is Jesus’ prayer for the church. Unity without uniformity – we’re different. Distinction without separation – we’re one. We know who we are, and we know what we’re not. And we fit together as parts of the body and as pieces of a puzzle. We are one. A dazzling diversity in unity. And this is Jesus’ prayer for the church – radically different but stunningly one.
