John 17:21 (NLT)
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.


After Memunat became a believer in the Lord Jesus, she was so excited about her new life in Christ and wanted to grow into its fullness. Because of this, she did not miss any church meetings, and would buy and read all the books her pastor recommended. She grew very fast.

We saw yesterday that when the Church is united in love, this is one of our most effective ways of evangelizing the world. Everyone wants to be part of a big loving family, and that is what the church is.

When the world sees people from different socio-cultural backgrounds, ethnic groups, etc. loving each other in truth, it is the greatest sign to the world that we are of God. No other people on earth have the capacity to love the way Christians do. This is because we are born of God (see 1 John 4:7).

But when believers are not properly taught, and remain spiritual babies, they will not walk in love and unity of spirit. Love is the fruit of the spirit. It is mature plants that get to be fruitful.

God uses the ministries of the Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastors and Teachers, to equip the saints to grow into spiritual maturity and attain Unity of the faith (see Eph 4:11-13). Believers who have minimal exposure to these ministries will experience minimal growth.

Go into today knowing that one way to receive from a person's ministry (whether that of an Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor & teacher) is by reading his books, listening to his sermons, etc.

Prayer: ask the Lord to help you grow more than ever before this year  (Eph 4:13).

-Pastor SD Abraham
