John 17:20-26 (ESV) 

“I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, 21that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, 23I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. 24Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. 25O righteous Father, even though the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me. 26I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.” 

All believers in Jesus (the church) should seek unity because of two PRAYERS of Jesus:

1. PRAYER: IN Jesus

The prayer “in Jesus” reveals three RELATIONSHIPS:

I. Relationship: The FATHER is in Jesus (Trinity)

II. Relationship: The BELIEVER is in Jesus (Salvation)

III. Relationship The CHURCH is in Jesus (Body)


The prayer “in Jesus” responds to the Father’s ACTIONS:

I. Action: The Father SENT Jesus

II. Action: The Father GLORIFIED Jesus

III. Action: The Father LOVED Jesus (and you!)


2. PRAYER: “WITH Jesus”


The prayer “with Jesus” explains four REALITIES:

I. Reality: You will see GLORY with Jesus

II. Reality: You will be LOVED with Jesus

III. Reality: You will be KNOWN with Jesus

IV. Reality: You will be on MISSION with Jesus
