One-Minute Reflection: John 17:20-21 (30 days of prayer for unity #8)

I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word so that they may all be one…”

Reflection

We who believe in Jesus have a duty to unite others to Him. That includes non-believers and the lost sheep.

We also need to unite our brothers and sisters who have misunderstood Jesus’ message of unity. In our days as in times past, much disunity has been done and fermented in God’s name. Jesus, however, tells us that His prayer for us is that we all be one.

Today’s Intention: Jesus, thank for your prayers for us. May we glorify you by fostering unity in all who we may encounter today.

Peace and Goodness

One-Minute Reflection: Colossians 3:11 (30 Days of prayer for unity #7)

Listen to the most recent episode of my podcast: One-Minute Reflection: Colossians 3:11 (30 Days of Prayer for Unity #7 https://anchor.fm/simplediakonia/episodes/One-Minute-Reflection-Colossians-311-30-Days-of-Prayer-for-Unity-7-ephpid

“Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all and in all.” Colossians 3:11

Reflection:

When we choose sides, we create a dent on the door of unity. However, the moment we think our side is superior than the other, the dent becomes a gash. As a result, the winds of injustice, abuse, and destruction enter our hearts.

Before there was disunity, there was Jesus Christ. It is to Him that we belong. Jesus is the carpenter who looks after the door of unity.

Today’s Intention: Jesus, may we always call on you when our door of unity needs repair.
