John 17:20-26 … Jesus’ prayer for the Church:
“I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.
“Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

PRAISE THE LORD! our congregations are again scheduling activities and events. As God’s people we do not sit back and become complacent. We need to always remember what Paul the Apostle explains in 1 Corinthians 6:19-20: “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” Wherever a Christian is, that’s where God is! His temple, His church, is HIS PEOPLE, and we are called to be witnesses—AMBASSADORS, everywhere we are with every step we take! So “put on the whole armor of God,” and be a BOLD representative for Him today and everyday! (Ephesians 6:10-20)
