I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.
Help us to preserve the hearts of my fellow-citizens from evil.
PRAYER governs conduct and conduct makes character. In Christ's teaching, it is not simply works of charity and deeds of mercy upon which He insists, but inward spiritual character. This much is demanded, and nothing short of it, will suffice.
All who are devoted to Christ the Lord, the only Son of the Father in Heaven, are one body, and are united in Him, regardless of labels, factions, and other human limitation. We declare this fundamental Christian unity and seek to encourage believers to act in the oneness He has given us.
We must let these truths of faith fill our soul until they change our life. God loves us! The Almighty who made heaven and earth!
God is interested even in the smallest events in the lives of his creatures – in your affairs and mine – and he calls each of us by our name.
