“Set them apart—purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them clean by the Truth; Your Word is Truth. Just as You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. And so for their sake and on their behalf I dedicate, consecrate, set Myself apart, that they also may be set apart, dedicated, consecrated, made clean in the Truth.
“Neither for these alone do I pray it is not for their sake only that I make this request, but also for all those who will ever come to believe in—trust in, cling to, rely on Me through their word and testimony, That they all may be one, just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me.
“I have given to them the esteem and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are ONE: I in them and You in Me, in order that they may become ONE and perfectly united, that the world may know and definitely recognize that You sent Me and that You have loved them even as You have loved Me.
“Father, I desire that they also whom You have entrusted to Me as Your gift to Me may be with Me where I am, so that they may see My esteem, which You have given Me Your love gift to Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
“O just and righteous Father, although the world has not known You and has failed to recognize You and has never acknowledged You, I have known You continually; and these men understand and know that You have sent Me.
“I have made Your Name known to them and revealed Your character and Your very Self, and I will continue to make You known, that the love which You have bestowed upon Me may be in them felt in their hearts and that I Myself may be in them.” End of quote.

The Oneness Of My Being With The Master? A Humbling Realization …?
I mean humbling in all the meaning of the word. Truly? No need for a humble person to be concerned with the business of this world. Quote:
