This year’s University Training was thought-provoking and exposing, but most of all it was very enjoyable! Even though I missed the first three days I felt that I gained so many valuable points. Before going into the training I had so many questions and thoughts on my mind regarding my future and what the Lord wanted of me. However these questions were answered when I got to the training, and when I left I had a huge burden for the Lord’s move in Europe.
I especially enjoyed that we must remain in the oneness. In the current age there is too much division. People have segregated and isolated themselves, thus causing conflict and misunderstanding. Even among God’s people we are divided into “denominations” based on worship preference, race, nationality, tongue and hierarchy. How can a divided Body function efficiently and effectively?
In John 17:21, Jesus prayed for oneness “That they all may be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us; that the world may believe that You have sent Me.” This really touched me because Jesus didn’t ask or tell us to be one – He prayed for it. Such was His feeling on it that He prayed to our Father that we would remain in the oneness; thus, we also should pray for this.
In Galatians 5:19-21 Paul talks about the works of the flesh – division is included among these. This clearly shows that our divisive tendencies need to be crucified in Christ so that we can remain in the oneness. Remaining in oneness is not just divine matter but a practical one as well. The church as the Lord’s bride must not be divided if it is to effectively carry out His work in preparation for His second coming.

Oh Lord Jesus my prayer today is that we may be one just as You are in the Father and the Father is in You!
