Tozer: focusing on God, rather than unity

Monday, August 21, 2023
    [Jesus:] “I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
    —John 17:22-23 (NIV)
    One hundred worshipers meeting together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be were they to become “unity” conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Pursuit of God [1948], Christian Publications, 1982, p. 90 (see the book)
    See also John 17:22-23; 6:40; Rom. 14:5-7; 15:5-7; 1 Cor. 1:10; Eph. 4:2-7,11-13; Phil. 2:1-2; Col. 3:13-14; Heb. 12:1-2,14; 1 John 4:11-12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep our eyes on Jesus.
