That They May All Be One Worship Series Concludes Sunday with Focus on Unity
This Sunday we will conclude our sermon and worship series on That They May All Be One with a focus on unity. In John 17:20-21, Christ prayed for his disciples then and for those who would follow later. He prayed, “I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, 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.” We must strive for unity because that is Christ’s will for us. But it is also the way that the world will know Christ.
