“I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:23 NIV
Growing up in the Dominican Republic and within the walls of Protestant churches (ranting cell Free Methodist to Assemblies of God) the word Evangelism was an act, something we did to others.
While there’s an aspect of Evangelism that is outward, Jesus shows us today that there’s a sure way for ‘the world‘ to ‘know He was sent by God the Father’. Isn’t this the Good News? That salvation has come from God through Jesus Christ? Well, there’s a for sure way to make this happen: TO BE ONE.
One with God, and one as a family of believers. The world hasn’t seen that. The world have seen charity, pamphlets, TV shows, and great books. The world hasn’t seen true unity. We are very quick to point our differences, split, and criticize.
Let us model out UNITY specially in the midst of differences. This will make Jesus known all around the world.
