John 17:20-23 (NKJV)

20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who wille]”>[e] believe in Me through their word; 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.

Teaching Points:

  • WHO WILL BELIEVE (V. 20) – Jesus prayed for US!
  • BE ONE (v.21) – Our unity is rooted in the Father and Son; it has to flow from Them.
  • GLORY (v.22) – Jesus has given us His glory so we are able to be one.
  • PERFECTLY ONE…SO THAT (v.23) – Our unity has a purpose: so the world will believe in Jesus and His love for them
