A “Must See” for all Christians!

(I will be posting an all-new Question From a Student tomorrow!)

If you had one prayer that you knew God would answer regarding His church, what would it be? That question is the premise for our current series, One Prayer, at Northway Church. This is a series that we are doing with literally thousands of other churches around the world. This weekend was Craig Groeschel’s turn to speak.

God used Craig’s message to really speak to me about how passionate God is about Christians being united! Christians everywhere have a horrible reputation. I always knew about that, but for some reason the message just really helped to open my eyes about it. Instead of always trying to have God answer our prayers, WHY CAN’T WE AS CHRISTIANS BE THE ANSWER TO HIS PRAYER?

Here was Christ’s prayer for us…

My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.  ”Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. John 17:20-24

If you go to Northway, then you already know about Craig’s message. I just feel like it is worth putting on here because it is such an important issue! I’m sick of seeing people get turned off to God because they look at how “Christians” act and get immediately turned off!

What are you doing to be the answer to Christ’s prayer?

Brian does, right? For some odd reason, he thinks that I do.

(Brian is going to kill me for this!)
