I once read an editorial that claimed there were 34,000 different identifiable groups calling themselves Christian. Recently I read that someone else claims there are 1517 different recognizable denominations in the United States. Whether it is 34,000 or 1517 or some other number the problem is that, according to the Bible there is only supposed to be one. In John 17, Jesus isn’t predicting unity, He is praying for it. He prays for unity because He knew that would be the one main difficulty for His church. In this sermon, I did not claim that we are the ones who have it right and everyone else has it wrong but that maybe we all need to examine ourselves by God’s truth and strive to be one as the Father and the Son are One.
