This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
Jesus in John 15:12 RSV
The 2014 World Cup reminds me that heaven is a place with believers in Jesus Christ from every continent and with unity that is unbreakable by prejudice or pride.
Father, we profess our unity with your children of faith in Jesus Christ from throughout the world. Thank you for the church: a foretaste of heaven. May all people from every part of the world put their faith in your Son for their salvation and experience unity both now and forevermore.
