“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.” – 2 Corinthians 13:14
God doesn’t need us, but thankfully, He desires us. He has never been lonely, nor has he ever needed a relationship outside of himself. This Divine community that theologians call the Trinity experienced perfect union and fellowship, before the creation of the world. The mystery of all mysteries is that: the One true God is made up of three distinct persons. One God-three persons. For reasons I can’t comprehend, God desired to create people to enjoy him, and to take dominion over the earth.
Our union with Christ grants us access into the throne-room of God by the Holy Spirit. Jesus’ presence at the right hand of the Father guarantees that he hears our prayers. But, our communion with God serves a greater purpose than to just answer our prayers. Answered prayer is good, but experiencing God as Father is the ultimate joy.
I realize the reality that we can enjoy God is a foreign concept to our religious minds.
The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is not a hard taskmaster. We get a glimpse of the Father in the life of the Son. In fact, Jesus said that his yoke was easy and that his burden was light (Matt. 11:30.) And, that if you’ve seen Him you have seen the Father(John 14:9.)
The Father sent Jesus to earth to reveal his heart to those who would become his children. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit so that we could be filled and indwelt with the very life of God. May we all learn to enjoy the mystery of our Trinitarian God. As we look forward to the redemption of our bodies (Rom.8:23.)
“But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him” (I Cor. 2:9)
