John 17:20-21

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 20 Neither do I pray for these alone, but also for those also who will believe in me through their word [teachings];

 21 That they all may be one; as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us3 so that the world may believe that you have sent me. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Salvation occurs when you are one with Christ and God. Once you are in union, it is permanent. If you pay attention and obey, it results in union with God. We should always approach God with the thought of being with him forever."]

1 John 4:17

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 17 In this [abiding or dwelling in God] love is brought to perfection, so that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this present world. [As God is perfect, holy, pure, and merciful, so are his children in whom love is perfected. Notice! John is saying that crucified true Christians have been changed and perfected so that they are the same as God in this present world — not after they pass away, but while on earth!]
