The State of Our Union

“I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one."  John 17:20-22

The verses above are an excerpt from the prayer Jesus prayed to the Father for all who would ever believe in Him.  If you haven't read the passage lately, you should read it.  The Book of John is amazing.

So, how do you think we're doing in answer to Jesus' prayer?

More importantly, how does He find us doing?

This prayer excites me.  It tells me that revival is coming.  It tells me that if you and I will do the work He has called us to, if we are unashamed of the gospel message, God the Father will make us one.

Do you believe it?  I do.

While visiting my son and daughter in Waco this weekend for my son's birthday, I was excited and encouraged.  My son loves to stop and talk to all those God lays upon his heart, and he asks them what their prayer needs are.  I saw people hungry and excited to pray with him, and it moved me.

There is a day coming when every eye will see and every ear will hear God's truth (Isaiah 32:3).  Paul and Timothy remind us of the need for unity with our fellow believers in Philippians 2.  You should read the whole chapter.  It is so wonderful and encouraging.  

Are you moved?

It's time we were all moved.  It's time we all got moving.  We must be about our Father's business.  We must do the work He has called us to, and we mustn't delay, for night is coming when no man will work (John 9:4).

It's time we took stock of our union as believers in Jesus and did something about it.  Won’t you join me in doing just that today?

Goodnight, Runners.

  9. I was just searching for this information for some time.
    After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site.
    I wonder what's the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative web
    sites in top of the list. Generally the top sites are
    full of garbage.

  10. First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I'd
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested
    to find out how you center yourself and clear your head
    before writing. I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.

    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    hints? Appreciate it!
