No Turning Back /6

Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that You have given me because You loved me before the of the world. O righteous Father, even though the world does not know You, I know You, and these know that You have sent me. I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which You have loved me may be in them, and I in them.” John 17:24-26 ESV

Between the Last Supper and His arrest in the Garden at Gethsemane, Christ took time to fellowship with His Father, our adoptive Father; “Let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” (Matthew 26:39)

And then this. His last words before His betrayal and arrest. Let those whom you have given me, these Apostles and all who come to belief through them, be with Me in Heaven. To feast on Your majesty and the glory You have given Me. I have made You known to them, and will continue to make Your great love known to them through the Holy Spirit unto the fullness of sanctification.

Jesus knew full well the cup He was about to drink. And His last thoughts were for you and me. That we be in Heaven with Him and in joyful relationship with Him and the Father. That is the love that led Him on, even unto death on the cross. That is a no turning back love.

Father, we give you praise, honor, and glory for your plan of salvation, and for sending Jesus to save us from ourselves. This can only be understood in your faithful lovingkindness to us, undeserving sinners all. To You be all the honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
