Once upon my discouragement…I prayed for the unity of believers to become a reality that I could see, touch, feel in the depths. My hangup was really simple…Jesus ( the beloved son of God) asks HIS daddy (whom is thrilled with his obedience to death) for unity with the believers. I find it hard to believe that God doesn’t give his precious son what HE asks for. But my own perception was clouded with what is theology and what is reality…when actually they need to come together in all aspects of the Word.
John 17:23…”May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me”. (Jesus Christ)
After many years of traveling on this road, seeking HIM and wanting more and more to be like HIM, this is still my prayer. Lord, are you not going to aquire unity in the body? Why does my soul yearn for that? As I listened to Brent, Tam and the praise team at Table Rock Fellowship…it was so clear to me…
GOD provided for my family to travel across the country, and then provided us good company to stay with…no uncomfortable moments, total awesomeness (yes that is a redneck term). And tonight I saw with my own eyes, the slightest glimpse of unity in the body of Christ. Absolutely beautiful!!! I am encouraged and ready to move on this road…YES Jesus gets what HE prays for, and HE is praying for our unity…LOVE IT!
