John 17:24-26 – Jesus Awaits our Reunion – “Father, I will that they also whom thou hast giuen me, be with me where I am, that they may behold my glory which thou hast giuen mee: for thou louedst mee before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world hath not knowen thee, but I haue knowen thee, and these haue knowen that thou hast sent me. And I haue declared vnto them thy Name, and will declare it: that the loue wherewith thou hast loued mee, may be in them, and I in them.” 1611 KJV (‘u’ is a ‘v’ and vice versa)
Jesus awaits our arrival in the place that he is residing now! What better news can we receive in our life, to absorb that word of truth and to choose to believe God’s word. It is of utmost importance to choose God, to believe what God has shared with us through his Son Jesus Christ, it is the core of our salvation and it sets our earthly path on our way to following God every day, leading us to the time that we WILL behold the glory of Jesus in the place that he resides now!
Re-read this whole chapter of John 17 and read it as a prayer for yourself being prayed by Jesus, and now picture Jesus awaiting your arrival to be in his presence. Can we with that vision in our mind have any doubt about where we stand in eternity? If so seek God now and ask God for guidance and believe 100% that when you search for God with all of your heart (Jeremiah 29:13) you will find the answers about God and your life will be completely fulfilled.
We make choices everyday and have done so throughout our lives, some good, some not so good, some completely wrong that have led us down paths that we may not have wanted for our lives. However the one and only choice that is important to our time on earth and our life eternal is choosing God, Joshua 24:15b, “…choose you this day whome you will serve…” May this Christmas Season bless you!
