"I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me."
So how may we be perfected in unity? By becoming one with Jesus, and then with each other. If we get our relationship in order with Jesus as He did with his Father we will be perfected in unity. I often wonder why this verse is not used more often in wedding vows. It holds the key to unity which is vital in any relationship. Our relationships as believers are to reveal to the world Jesus was who He said He was. God forgive us, and help us to do what is right purely out of our love for Him above all else.
In His love.
I literally get into fall! I could not resist sliding down the bank carpeted in bright, golden leaves provided by this gorgeous tree. I did so in order to climb up to the limb that gave me a front seat over the river. I did attempt my "signature stance," the flying eagle on one leg, but it is partly concealed by the beautiful leaves.
