And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began. John 17:5 NIV
- Jesus is eternal. I love that Jesus had no beginning. He was before he was born. He also knew where he came from (John 8:14). I can’t remember where I came from, but Jesus knew his eternality.
- God glorifies other persons within the Godhead. God, manifested in Jesus Christ, enjoys receiving that glory even to the point of praying for it. Their love relationship is joyful and reciprocal. Love is bountiful, and one of its purposes is the enjoyment of the other.
- I am incredibly grateful that I have been invited to be in union with God. The Father in Jesus, me in Jesus, and Jesus in me (John 14:20). The Holy Spirit is in me also. I get union with God! That is the most incredible news!
