“I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me." - John 17:20–21 (ESV) I sometimes wonder what would happen if the Apostle Paul stepped out of a time machine. What would he think of the church culture? Would he be encouraged or discouraged? What New Testament letter would he demand we go read? Would he wonder how we went from THE church at Corinth or Thessalonica to 6 Baptist, the Roman Catholic church, a couple Methodist, some Church of Christ, a few non-denominational gatherings and more? This week I am grateful to have my longtime friend, David Thew come and open the Word for us. I've known David for almost 13 years. He currently is a pastor as Summit Crossing across town. He will be opening up an important passage from Jesus himself that calls us to consider what it is and what it means for us to be Christians in our city that are united. What draws us together? What might separate us? Read through John 17 to prepare your heart and mind to receive.
