“And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”” John 17:26
Can you fathom the love God almighty has for His Son the Lord Jesus Christ is the very same love we who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord have inside of us? And that it’s not just Father God’s love for Jesus that is in us, but that God almighty HIMSELF is living inside we who follow Jesus?
I don’t know about you, but just thinking about that for moments makes every single challenge and concern and worry and trouble and hurt in my life just fall to the wayside. There is no greater love than God’s love, and that very love is in us! Not just His love, as though that’s not in and of itself more than imaginable. But the Spirit of God lives in us! When we think of blessings, and things to be thankful for, we tend to think of what we can see with our eyes and hold in our hands, don’t we?
God’s love, and God Himself, they’re bigger and mightier and more beautiful and wonderful than we can ever hold with our hands and behold with our eyes on this earth. But one day, friend, you and I who follow Jesus, we will be face to face with God’s full everlasting glorious presence. What we have today in Christ is a foretaste of what one day will come.
Let us be thankful, oh, let us be thankful even now, even this very hour, that Jesus and His love are right inside us! Oh, praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Thank you Lord!
