    Put on the new personality that was created according to God’s will in
    true righteousness and loyalty.—Eph. 4:24.

    During his life on earth as a perfect man, Jesus was surrounded by imperfect humans. He was raised by imperfect parents, and he spent years at home with imperfect relatives. Even his closest followers were influenced by the ambitious, manipulative spirit common around them. For example, on the evening before Jesus was executed, there “arose a heated dispute among them over which one of them was considered to be the greatest.” (Luke 22:24)


    But Jesus was confident that his imperfect followers could grow spiritually and form a united congregation. That same evening, Jesus prayed for the loving unity of his apostles, asking his heavenly Father:

    “May [they] all be one, just as you, Father, are in union with me and I am in union with you, that they also may be in union with us,

    . . . in order that they may be one just as we are one.”John 17:21, 22.
