Unified in Heaven

In heaven, I am thankful that we will not be segregated into our denominational and theological allegiances.  There I will be worshiping God beside folks who disagree with me with theologically.  

Why are we not trying to get along with those folks right now?  Or we just going to wait until to heaven to get to know them?  Are we still going to let our differences divide us rather than provide us with different perspectives?  

The amount of “us” and “them” verbiage in the previous paragraph makes me nauseous.  Ephesians 4:3-6 says, “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” (emphasis mine)  Can we strive for oneness more than we strive to be right?  Yes, share your convictions and stand firm in what you believe.  However, consider what you say and how you say it before you speak.
