Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 306

  1. “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me” (John 17:24).

He loved them. They weren’t just His mission or His team. He loved them and wanted to be with them. Think how extraordinary that is! The Creator amidst His creation, not just in mission mode, but desiring relationship. How can that be? How can walking with us be attractive to Him? How can our world–one He created with a mere command–be appealing to One so wholly other? I understand why being with Him is Heaven for us, but why does He want to spend eternity in our presence? This is the amazing revelation of God’s love for us. He doesn’t just want us to be His project. He wants to be WITH us!
