From A Park Bench - John 17:22-23



John 17:22-23

The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.

The mystery of the Trinity is the mystery of the glorious God that now dwells inside the believer. Here just before he is betrayed and arrested Jesus prays for himself and his disciples.

God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are one, inexplicably united in a wondrous union of love, delight and joy.  Forged before time in eternity in a lavish dance of intimate joy and as Christ and God are eternally interwoven, so we become interwoven into the trinity when we come into Christ though faith in his finished work and righteousness.

Immanuel ‘God with us’, Jesus Christ is the Lord our God living inside of me.

Jesus Christ is not hidden away in the universe somewhere, patiently counting the minutes until he can become a real factor in the universe. Jesus Christ is the one in and by and through all things exists and is held together, including you and me.

We are perfectly one in Christ, he is present in every believer. Jesus is wonderfully and humbly sharing himself and his life with his Father in us

We have been baptized in the glory, the fullness, the excellence, the beauty of the trinity.
Jesus is sharing his rich life with us, every moment; every second we breathe we are interwoven into God.

There are no mundane days, there are no worthless moments. When we met and talk to people Christ works through us. He works through us when we make the family sandwiches, when we clean the house, when we wash the laundry, when we fix the office photocopier, when we give our work mate a lift home, in everything we do, God in Christ works through us to bring Christ into a fallen and fragile world.
