This is what actually happened

The Greeks and Romans, Jews and heathen, hated each other. Between all the nations of the world there was hardly a thought of love. The very idea of self-sacrifice was a strange one. When unbelievers saw that Christians from different nations, under the powerful working of the Holy Spirit, loved one another even to the point of self-sacrifice in times of need—they were amazed. They said: “Behold how these people love one another!”

We obviously undervalue unity and the power of believers praying in unity. Unity was Jesus’s plan. It was His strategy to reach the lost. It was His plan to convince the world that He was the Son of God. He didn’t have a backup proposal or a plan B. It was all or nothing. John 17:21 says, “ . . . that they may all be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You. May they also be one in Us, that the world may believe that You have sent Me.” The plan was simple—we show to others the love that was in God toward Christ and that Christ showed to us, and the world will be overwhelmed with the authenticity of Christianity. 

How you doing on showing the love of God to Christians and others?
