One of the amazing things about God’s love for us is that the Spirit lives in each one of us. It follows, then, that if God is in us and we are in God, peace and love for one another will rule. Praise God’s name!

Jesus prayed, “I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. – John 17:20-23
