John 17: 20-22

“My prayer is not for them alone.  I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.  I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one…”

The manifestaton of who God is in the person of Christ – we share in that.  Why?  So that we may be one as they are one.  What does that mean?  The Father and the Son are one in purpose, one in love, one in forgiveness. Through Jesus’ death on the cross and our subsequent salvation,  They have granted us the amazing gift of being a part of that: to be one with them in purpose,  in forgiveness,and in love.
