That They May Be One, Part 1

Ken Harrell

Senior Pastor

We can pray for a lot of different things… for ourselves, and for others. But do you realize that Jesus Himself prayed for us? Not just humanity in general, but specifically for those who are believers. And when He prayed for us, He prayed for what matters most. His prayer?…“That They May Be One.”

Fill-in Notes

Key Scripture

John 17; Psalm 133

Take Away / Application

Unity is the most important possession the church body has, as believers, on how we function and act.

Discussion Questions

Don’t be afraid to add to this list, skip questions that don’t work for your group or branch off with additional questions as discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.

  1. Define the differences between unity, uniformity, and unanimity.
  2. Pastor Harrell said, “Unity means oneness, of heart, of purpose, and of truth.” Read John 17:9–17. What truth is to unify believers? Define “sanctify.”
  3. Read Psalm 37:23 and Psalm 119:105. How have you seen the truth of God’s Word shape, define, and direct your life?
  4. If we set the Word of God down in order to join hands with others, Christian or non-Christian, is that the unity God desires? What dangers come when we set down the Word of God in order for unity?
  5. Read John 17:21. Think outside the box this week. In what way can you show Jesus to someone in an unexpected way? (Serve someone in your neighborhood, bring someone dinner, purchase the next person’s cup of coffee in line, etc.)

Accountability

  1. What have you learned from your time in the Bible this week? How is it impacting your daily life?
  2. How is your prayer life? Are you spending quality time in prayer with the Lord?
