My Study On Unity: Part Two

I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
— John 17:23

I hear this saying very clearly to me that if I can unite with other believers, the world would have some real proof that Jesus was sent for us all. That God really does love us and has great plans for every single one of us.

I see this in my own relationships as well. If I can live in sweet unity with my husband others may see this and want it as well.

If I can unite with all my girls, not judging or tearing them down, people would take a second look.

If I could have patience with my children and be slow to anger when my daughter dumps out another bag of pretzels on the floor, people may see something different in me.

They would see me loving, not hating. They would see genuine concern, not judgment.

I can see walls being torn down. People being real about real struggles and past hurts.

I can see real freedom.
