A Treasured Possession Of Our Lord

“I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 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. John 17:20-21

Believe in Him, for all those who believe in our Lord Jesus are the treasured possession of our Lord. Here in the garden near the end of His earthly life, Jesus our Lord prayed earnestly for those to come who would believe in Him through the testimony of His disciples. And we do! But how our Lord prayed that we would become one, just as He and the Father were in each other in their great loving relationship which we scarcely understand now. From His prayer, we must believe that this can happen!

From all those denominations of Christian, from the east and from the west, from the past and present unto the future, let all those who believe in Christ become His treasured possessions through our faith in Him. Let us know that we are becoming one in Christ, so that the world will see our oneness in Him and believe. It does seem a far country to travel to right now, but our Lord will guide us safely to be one in Him.

May God our Lord guide us swiftly to be one in Christ His Son as the end grows so very near. Amen.
