We’re going to take a short excursion away from Luke this Sunday. We’re going to remind ourselves, however quickly, why we do what we do as the church. Implicit in all of the descriptions of “church” in the New Testament is the concept of community.
We’re going to derive our understanding of the goal for Christ’s community from the prayer He made in John 17, specifically verses 20-23.
As you read these verses, what seems to be the most repeated request that Jesus makes for us? What reasons can you discern for his request?
Hopefully this will inspire some exploration of this topic. See you Sunday!
