A Message from God’s Word

Gospel of John 17

“Jesus Prays”

John 17:22-23 – Our Union in Christ, “And the glory which thou gauest me, I have giuen them: that they may be one, euen as we are one: I in them, and thou in mee, that they may bee perfect in one, and that the world may know that thou has sent me, and hast loued them, as thou hast loued me.” 1611 KJV

As I write this devotion for November it is October 31st, Reformation Day for the church (tomorrow November 1st is All Saints day), 500 years ago Martin Luther nailed his 95 thesis to the door of the church requesting for all to gather at a meeting to discuss the issues with the scriptures and the practices of the church. The truth is nobody came to that meeting and there was no discussion, division was in place, the rest is history. Martin Luther NEVER wanted the church to be splintered and it never would have been so if the issues were only social or church practices that were at stake. The discovery of the reformers of the day, that included Martin Luther and many others, was about the Word of God and the differences between what the Roman Catholics used and what the reformers discovered from those that came from Antioch into the West from Turkey were drastically different from one set or documents to the other.

This prayer of John 17 offered by Jesus himself in his physical form on earth is a plea to God that those who have heard the word of God through the mouth of the words of Jesus Christ would be one in him as he (Jesus) is one with God. Today in our world we are fractured at every corner of our lives, church, family, home, community, country, and on and on! A house divided is in jeopardy of falling! Jesus has already prayed for this moment in time and as followers of Jesus we should take this prayer very seriously and seek ways to mend divisions and bridge our differences so that we can be the ‘People of God’ to one another, to our families, our neighbors, and to the world! May we each seek our own path in our own sphere of influence and begin to talk unity in Christ with one another and those God puts in our path.

Quoted text are taken from the 1611 King James Version of the Bible with the many variety of spellings, which ARE NOT MISTAKES. The beauty of this Bible is from these spellings you can learn to number and add the sum of God’s word and know without a doubt what the meaning of the scriptures are as you read. A language that was created for a 5th grade level reader and a system for clarity of understanding God’s word without commentary. For More Information Visit our website: www.ChristianMissionConnection.org
