I get so excited to think about the love that God has for me as a human being! He valued me so highly that he sent his son to bring me into oneness with him! The last night Jesus was together with his disciples he prayed to God, His Father, saying these wonderful words: “I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” (John 17,22-23) – Complete unity with God and with each other through Jesus!
God shows us very clearly that there is no way to unity with God except through Jesus Christ. He is the bridge – the way to God. Jesus Himself said: “I am the way!” (John 14,6) and in 1st Tim. 2,5 Paul tells us: “there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” To except him as the Lord and King of your life is to be born into the Family of God – become His own child according to John 1,12-13 which says: “To all who received him, . . he gave the right to become children of God, children born . . . of God!” We are family – even to the extent of being heirs of God as Paul explains in Rom. 8,17: “if we are children, then we are heirs - heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ!”
Do we have reason for rejoicing? Jesus came to bring us back to God, be one with God, his children and co-heirs with Christ! We have a future of being with God and Jesus forever and ever in a life where no evil exist! Even the cow will feed with the bear, the lion will eat straw like the ox and the infant will play near the hole of the cobra the bible tells us! When you know that you have a great future – for sure you have a good day today – a day with expectations, something great to look forward to!
