Sermon Outline

As one, that the world may know.”

Jesus prays for himself.

Jesus prays for the disciples.

11Now I am departing from the world; they are staying in this world, but I am coming to you. Holy Father, you have given me your name; now protect them by the power of your name so that they will be united just as we are. [John 17:11 NLT]

Jesus prays for us

20“I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. [John 17:20 NLT]

21I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. [John 17:21 NLT]

23bMay they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me. [John 17:23b NLT]

“As one, that the world may know.”


Here's what we must remember and pray for:

  1. Our mission is for the world to know Jesus.
  2. Our strategy is to be one with each other.
  3. We can only be one with each other if we are one with God.

“As one, that the world may know.” [ John 17]
