Facing torture and His own death,
facing the climax of His entire ministry,
what was pressing on Jesus’ heart?
He longed for the world to see Father & Son
in the full light of reality,
in all their greatness,
their magnificence, and
When we know and respond to God
for all He is,
the world is put right again.
When God is thus glorified in our hearts and in our lives,
then our relationship with Him is put right, and
He is All-in-all in us.
Picture your heart and life seeing and responding to God for all He is.
Picture your family and loved ones seeing and responding to God for all He is.
Picture the Church and our world seeing God for all He is and
responding in joyful faith.
That is why Jesus taught us to pray every day:
Our Father in heaven,
may Your name be glorified and exalted,
may Your Kingdom come,
may Your will be done
on earth, just as it is in heaven.
(Matthew 6:9-10, paraphrase)
