John 17:20-26 records Jesus’ final prayer for His disciples before His arrest. He prayed that all His disciples both present and future would be one — united with Him and with each other. One day this unity will be perfected when those who believe in Christ dwell with Him, enjoying God’s glorious love forevermore. Until then, Christians must reflect on Earth the unity they will experience in Heaven.

The church’s unity is an essential element of the church’s mission, for the loving union between believers is intended to attract non-believers to the Savior. Those who care about promoting the gospel will both appreciate and benefit greatly from this helpful study of a critical Bible passage.

Editor’s Note: Included within this guide as a bonus is a unique “Exploring the Classics” section, which will allow rich resources from the past to enrich the preaching of the present.
