Let’s face it. Election years get tense. By the time November comes, it can feel like the water is about to boil over. But come January, things begin to simmer again. The signs go away, the social media statuses aren’t as heated, the incessant calls and texts will come to a glorious end. When all of the dust of the election settles, will your relationships still be good? In today’s passage, Jesus’ last prayer before His death is that the Church will be unified. Verse 23 goes even further to say that the unity of His followers will be a display of God’s love. Administrations, political parties, and policies come and go, but our mission to show the world God’s love will always remain. Will you jeopardize your unity with another follower of Jesus over politics?
“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— 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. “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. “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
