ONE in Purpose
Sir Godfrey Gregg
20 My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 23 I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. John 17:20-21, 23
Today, let us consider unity, coming together as one, a common union. What strengthens our witness and the power of Christ’s love? When we as followers of Christ are “ONE”; one in prayer and one in purpose. Christ prayed for us to be ONE in John 17:21 a. Why? He knew the power of coming together for the same reason, a powerful witness to the reality of God’s love.
To live in unity as ONE, does not mean we agree on everything. There will be many opinions and points of disagreement. But we must agree on our purpose in life – to work together for the fulfillment of God’s will. So, as we pray and seek God for direction in leading us to our next Level, our outward expression of God’s love will reflect our inward unity of purpose.
What are some preferences that you have which hinder our unity of purpose?
How can you reflect God’s outward expression of love to others?
What do we at The Mystical Order want to be known for? How are we demonstrating this?
Pray that we can demonstrate UNITY through our words and actions?
