Daily Bread 4/8/2022


Daily Bread – April 8, 2022 (The Sixth Day – Genesis 1:24-31) John 17:21 – So that all may be one, just as You are in Me, Father, and I am in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You have sent Me. When the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in the life of a person, the result is unity with the Lord Jesus and the Father. To think that through human effort and religious observance one could attain such unity is completely beyond the reality of this message. We are brought into unity with the Lord Jesus and the Father through the new birth, which causes us to miraculously “be in Christ” (2 Corinthians 5:17). At the heart of the revelation of God in the Old Testament, we understand that Yahweh God is One, “Hear, oh Israel, Yahweh your God, Yahweh is One” (Deuteronomy 6:4). The concept of unity is not restricted to these passages in John 17. In John 14, Jesus promised that He and the Father would come and make their dwelling in the believer (John 14:23).
