A Prayer for Unity | John 17 (Video)

A Prayer for Unity | John 17 Video by Pastor, Gary Hamrick for Cornerstone Chapel Leesburg, VA

When Jesus prays for us in John 17, He asks the Father to give us UNITY. But what kind of “unity” is Jesus speaking of? Does He mean that we should just all “get along,” accepting everything and anything under the “umbrella of unity?” Not at all. Unfortunately, some Christians and/or churches, in pursuit of unity, have forsaken integrity and doctrinal purity. So how do we receive and maintain the kind of unity that Jesus prays about for us? Pastor Gary shares four points about Biblical unity in today’s study from John 17.
00:00 – Introduction
14:58 – 1) UNITY is centered on Christ and His Word
21:17 – In essentials, unity; in nonessentials,liberty; and in all things, charity.
22:00 – 2) UNITY is diversity with harmony
24:42 – 3) UNITY is based on a mutual relationship with Christ
28:43 – 4) UNITY is obtained from God but maintained by us
