Sunday, January 26, 2020 “Together We Can”

John 17:11 NKJV Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.

Verse 21-23 21-that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22-And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

Jesus unity is not sameness or uniformity.

Rules without relationship creates rebellion.

 Jesus unity is individual distinctiveness going in the same direction in order to achieve a common objective.

The Critical Element to Oneness

John 17:17-19 NKJV Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.

The road to oneness is sanctification by and through the truth.

Biblical truth is the absolute reality by which everything is measured.

Biblical truth takes the guesswork out of life. 

John 8:32 NKJV "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

What is Truth?

Truth is God’s view on any subject matter. 

John 17:14-16 NKJV I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. 16They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

The world is defined as the system designed by satan to leave God out.

God’s Kingdom cannot manifest or His Glory be present when His truth is absent.

Together we can be greater than any of us alone will ever be.

The result of true oneness and unity in truth Is the Anointing and the Blessing of God on our lives. Psalm 133:1-3
