Complete Unity

John 17:20–23  (ID: 1309)

Christians sometimes splinter over trivial differences—but Jesus wanted His followers to be unified. Alistair Begg explains that Christian unity is not about denominations but about biblical truth. We should be unified by the Gospel, the message of truth that was delivered by the disciples and preserved for us in the Scriptures. Our unity should be visible, purposeful, and expressed outwardly for the world to see.

20“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.
