Glory Be


Love has no divisions.

(Listen to my song “Glorify You with Me” by clicking HERE)


John 17:22-23

“And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me.”


Jesus is attempting to put into words something that is beyond our ability to mentally grasp.

He wants us…ALL of us…including the people we don’t like…including the people we disagree with…including the people of every nation…to be ONE…as Jesus is ONE with God.

Jesus wants all of us to know we are included in him…as ONE body of Christ.

The mystical truth is…we are already ONE.

To not see this…to create artificial divisions…is to live in a delusion.

God loves us unconditionally…such that Jesus was willing to lay down his life to show what that kind of love looks like

It’s a Love that would die for the beloved…even when the beloved has completely rejected that Love.

Jesus also showed us that such a Love totally poured out…does not end but is transformed into new life.

This is what “saves” you.

This is the glory given by God to Jesus and shared with each of us.
