Answering Jesus' Prayer

I'm having a blast at the Willow Creek Ancient-Future Conference. I'm being challenged, inspired, frustrated, and energized. I'll try to get all my session notes in at some point, but my battery died on me half way through the day yesterday.

I had a thought yesterday morning: Biblical community is the answer to Jesus' prayer. In John 17, on the night when Jesus could have justifiably and understandably been concerned with only himself, he prayed that his disciples would be "one." That we would experience the same unity that he experienced with his Father. As we live in community, we become the living, dynamic, manifested answer to that prayer. What a privilege to become the answer to Jesus' prayer!
