“That They May Be One”

On the night that Jesus was betrayed, in the room where He and His disciples shared a last meal, Jesus closed out their time with a prayer… the prayer recorded in John 17. He first prayed for Himself and what God was about to do through Him. Then He prayed for His disciples. And finally, He prayed for you and me.

20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 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. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.

That’s Jesus’ prayer. It must be our prayer too. On the night of Easter Sunday, Christians from 343 churches, representing dozens of denominations, met in Dallas to have a part in answering that prayer. Our churches are all supporting “Revive Texas.” We are going out into our communities asking people to give their lives to Jesus. And we are all committed to the truth of His life, death, and resurrection. We met. We worshipped. We prayed that lost people would come to Jesus. And we left our denominational differences at the door. It was a powerful beginning.

On Monday we hosted an a cappella worship at Singing Oaks at noon. It was powerful too. You could feel the Spirit in this place. There were already stories of people who had been reached. There was a sense that God is at work. Join us this week if you possibly can. You will be blessed if you do. I promise.

Singing Oaks is hosting Revive Texas every Monday. There is a time of worship at noon and a meal at 1:00 pm.
