A PRAYER OF UNTIY - By Robert E.Hanna

Scripture Reading: John 17:19-23

Christ's intercessory prayer is filled with the plea for  \preservation of the unity, which it was His mission to  establish. The essence of this prayer is the foundation of the  spiritual relationship to be sought and secured by every  believer. Even though His work was not yet finished, the  power of the Holy Trinity had already prevailed. God's will  and purpose has never been geared to the degree in which it  has been revealed. It is accomplished by His decree in  accordance with His program, and it is revealed in the time  frame of His own choosing. The depths of unification  communicated in this prayer were neither known nor  understood by its beneficiaries.

The Lord Himself was the only being Who had no need to  be purified, but He was the only One Who could perform that  which could redeem the lost. "For their sakes I sanctify myself that they also might be sanctified through the  truth ... That they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in me,  and I in Thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world  may believe that Thou hast sent me. And the glory which  Thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even  as we are one: I IN THEM, AND THOU IN ME, THAT THEY  MAY BE MADE PERFECT IN ONE." What power is this!

Nowthe Lord Jesus Christ sits enthroned in glory, having  suffered and bled and died and risen from the dead. "Christ  died for our sins according to the Scriptures ... was buried ... and  rose again the third day according to the Scriptures" (I  Corinthians 15:3-4). All this, that you and I might be one with Him!

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
