Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.
John 17:5 NASB
Jesus knew His mission before He ever left His heavenly throne, yet He came anyway. He came for the Father, in obedience. He came for you and me out of His abundant love. Jesus came to reconcile the Father to His creation. He came that we may know His glory and share in it.
The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
John 17:22, 24 NASB
Remembering the glory with the Father that was before creation began. Before Jesus would leave heaven and come to earth. That is our hope, that we may know and share in the glory that Jesus knew before He left His place with the Father.
🌹What a sacrifice. What abundant love. What a hope we have in Jesus. Are you living/walking in His glory now?
