As we go about our day, it seems that we’re inundated with news of division – this side fighting against that side. Very easily, our thoughts are drawn into what’s happening in the nations.
But the Spirit of God says this, ‘Church, do not be drawn into that which divides you. Do not allow the world to draw you into strife. I have called you, my children, those who know me and walk with me, to be one. Be joined together and of one heart in me. Do not let the troubles of this world distract you or draw you in. Focus on me and walk together as one body; for just as I am one with you, walk as one in me.
Be a carrier of my love and peace during these tumultuous times. Be united together in one heart and mind, so that you will bring peace, clarity and solutions to the chaos that surrounds the world.’
John 17:22-24 (MSG)
The same glory you gave me, I gave them,
So they’ll be as unified and together as we are—
I in them and you in me.
Then they’ll be mature in this oneness,
And give the godless world evidence
That you’ve sent me and loved them
In the same way you’ve loved me.
