Be a Gem

I’m praying not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me because of them and their witness about me. The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind. Just as you, God, are in me and I in you, so they might be one heart and mind with us. Then the world might believe that you, in fact, sent me. The same glory you gave me, I gave them, So they’ll be as unified and together as we are — I in them and you in me. Then they’ll be mature in this oneness, and give the world evidence that you’ve sent me and loved them, in the same way you’ve loved me.
-John 17:23, The Message
