It isn’t about a big power play or ginormous ego.
It isn’t about being in control or always being right.
It isn’t about telling others how wrong they are.
It isn’t about shunning those “wretched sinners” in the world.
What is it about –
It’s about loving God with all our heart, soul, mind & strength. (Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. Mark 12:30)
It’s also about loving others as ourselves. (Love your neighbor as yourself. Mark 12:31)
It’s also about being obedient to God. (If you love me, obey my commandments. John 14:15)
John 17:20-24 (NLT) “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me. Father, I want these whom you have given me to be with me where I am. Then they can see all the glory you gave me because you loved me even before the world began!”
Philippians 2:2 ESV “Complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. “
