“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
In Jesus’ prayer after what scholars call his last supper he thanks his Father for being one with each other. In addition he asks His Father that his current and future disciples also become one with Father God & Jesus.
What is so important about this request?
Simply this, Jesus shares with us his vision of the relationship he expects between the Triune God and us. His prayer is we walk in union, harmony, and agreement with the Triune God.
In fact, his example of Biblical marriage between a man and woman gives us a model to emulate. In marriage, the purpose is for two people to become one. A single entity with dual input.
Likewise in our relationship with Father, Son, and Spirit who lives in us, we have the privilege to walk in union with the Creator of life. Jesus’ desire is to make it so. Doesn’t God become more real when both you and Him are in agreement with purpose, meaning, and methodology?
Like a successful marriage were both give 100% of each other for the sake of the other, so is the same in our union with the Triune God. God is 100% committed and faithful in the relationship. The ultimate question: How about you & I?
