“I do not pray for these alone [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for [all] those who [will ever] believe and trust in Me through their message, that they all may be one; just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us…” (John 17: 20, Amplified Bible)
Jesus prayed for all of us. This prayer made in the presence of his immediate apostles was also his promise for us today—for Jesus was the Truth-teller and proved all that he declared.
He wanted all to know and acknowledge with him that we are One. This oneness is our unbreakable connection to the Christ, to the very truth of who we are. The Christ-consciousness that Jesus taught and practiced, accepts and cherishes our oneness with God and therefore, with each other. We are forever inseparable from God, Spirit, Truth, and this reality is unconfined. It was not limited to the era when Jesus lived nor to a specific group of people.
Jesus’s message preceded his physical presence and follows it as well. The Master came to show us what has always been true—that God is One and that Love is His nature and the very law of Life. As we trust this Truth, we feel the power of this eternal prayer. We feel Jesus’s own earnest desire for us, the divine purpose for which he lived, died, and was resurrected.
Let’s abide in this prayer. Let’s rest in its glory and act accordingly—loving one another because there is no him and me, no them and us. There is only One.
