ONE - John 17.11

John 17:11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name—the name you gave me—so that they may be ONE as we are ONE.
ONE. I love this. I love the idea of ONE. Debbie and I have been leading marriage conferences for years and have spoken of the truth of "ONENESS". I have always used the Scripture in Gen. 2:24-25 - For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become ONE flesh. The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.
I love those verses and this truth. And I love that Jesus prayed for ONE. When I read this verse again this week, I found myself praying for ONE...ONE with my God, ONE with Debbie, ONE with my family, ONE with my team mates, and ONE with the leaders and members of our church.
Are you living as ONE? Are you praying for it?
ONE...what a beautiful number and truth.
