And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: John 17:22 (NKJ).

From eternity the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have been one.

In Jesus’ prayer, He calls for the Church to be one. It’s a big order we cannot accomplish on our own. Jesus’ disciples spent years in His presence but were not one until Pentecost.

Kim Allan Johnson author of The Gift and The Morning shares in this new book a vision of the Church as a team. The word “team” conveys images of togetherness, mutual support, and the blending of talents and abilities to become something together that is much greater than any could be alone.

The Bible tells us that our success as individual Christians depends on our understanding and experiencing the Church as God intended it to be. Johnson believes that it is “the calling of the Seventh-day Adventist Church to portray the union of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.”

“When humanity fell The Trinity related to us on the basis of our need, not Theirs.

While we were spitting in God’s face, His beloved Son died in agony for each of us. We got the opposite of what we deserved. We got the Best when we deserved the least.”

Now it’s your turn to give your best to the least of your brethren. The church can reflect something of the glory of God. Through your words and deeds, in the home, church, community, and workplace, you can be an ambassador of reconciliation and relational healing.
