John 17:20-26, Call to Oneness

Focus of this week is Jesus’ prayer in the gospel of John 17. In today’s gospel lesson Jesus prays for his disciples, but also for us–for all people who come to believe. Jesus prays for His friends that they would be united with Him and with one another. It means we all work together to follow Him and love others.

One way we can do that is to pray together like Jesus prayed. It also means we celebrate Jesus together! We tell others about Him and we worship Him! Being united in Jesus means we also pay attention to everyone in Jesus’ family, like the people to our left and our right. We stop and comfort them when they’re down. We’re helpful and encouraging.

We’re all different, but God works through all of us, and when we are all excited and working toward the goal of loving others together as one, others will see God’s love and want to join in. Today we may have practiced being one in Jesus, and we can be one in Jesus in our lives, too. If we all love Jesus and love others, this is a way to show God’s love to the world together.  IL-WOONG.
