from the book, ONE WITH OUR FATHER
John 14 – 17
Father, I was attracted to Your Son Jesus
because of You.
I sensed in Him something more than myself,
something more than I could ever be on my own.
I sensed You in Him,
the Almighty God,
the impossibly holy.
Yet Your purity was now human,
I saw “human” and “holy” joined
in one Person.
I was drawn to
love Him and
because I saw You
Now, I find Him drawing me back to You.
Through Him I am learning to know You.
Through Him I am brought into Your holy presence.
I am finding Him to be
the way to You,
the truth about You,
the life that flows from You.
In Him I hear all Your heart wishes to say to us.
In Him I begin to see all You are doing for us.
In Him I share Your Father-Son relationship:
I receive a Father’s deep love for His holy Son.
I return a Son’s worshiping love for His pure and perfect Father.
In Your Son I breathe
the same Spirit that made Your Son so beautiful.
In Him I breathe
through Your Spirit,
I breathe the peace and perfect union of
Father and Son.
