That they all may be one;
as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee,
that they also may be one in us:
that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
Jesus prayed to His Father that all followers of Christ, those who believe and live by the truth of His words and obey His commandments may be one.The prayer was for the unity in the Spirit of all true believers obedient to the teachings of Christ.
This is Not the unity of all religions. Neither this is a call for the establishment of a single united Christian Church. It is commendable to see all christian churches glamour for unity. They are nostalgic about having unity even to the point of compromising their (long-held) chartered doctrines.
For our part, our goal is to be united with the Father through Jesus Christ as He prayed,“That they also may be one in us.” In His Kingdom, we are one flock of one Shepherd. We worship the Father everywhere and any time of the day and night. Not all of us attend church services or mass but we are all committed to obey the words of Jesus Christ.
We are reconciled with the Father. We are one in Him, united as one in the family of God.We love our Lord God with all our heart, soul and mind. We also love our neighbors and even our enemies. We respect all religions and we honor their leaders. We love the Catholics, Protestants and the Evangelicals.
We love Pope Francis for trying to follow the teachings of Christ as close as possible. We should pray for him instead of judging him as the anti-christ. He is not perfect human being but he does things to clean his church with thieves and hypocrites. He is outstanding in his effort in helping the poor. A real humble leader of the Catholic Church. We don’t agree to all what he said and done but we still honor him with warmth affection.
Let us be united with the Father of all, our Father who is in heaven. Our Yes is yes and our no is no. We don’t double talk because we walk in the light and not in darkness. We value our words and honor every word we say because our Lord is Christ whose words shall not pass away. He words will not return void. We can never offer you an artificial unity like politicians do. Our unity is in the Spiritual realm of things without walls.
