John 17:23

"I in them and Thou in Me, that they
may be made perfect in one: and that
the world may know that Thou hast
sent Me and hast loved them as
Thou hast loved Me..." John 17:23

"The Sermon on the Mount indicates that when we
are on Jesus Christ's errands, there is no time to stand
up for ourselves. Jesus says, in effect, Do not be
bothered with whether you are being justly dealt with
or not. To look for justice is a sign of deflection from
devotion to Him. Never look for justice in this world
but never cease to give it....Jesus says, Go steadily
on with what I have told you to do and I will guard
your life. If you try to guard it yoursef, you remove
yourself from my deliverance. The most devout
among us become atheistic in this connection;
we do not believe God, we enthrone common
sense and tack the name of God onto it.
We do lean to our own understanding,
instead of trusting God with our whole hearts
-Oswald Chambers
