Jesus’ words in this section of scripture should be met with a hushed silence as we listen in on His intimate conversations with the Father.
Jesus requests that the love in the Father’s heart for Jesus, His Son, would be the same love that burns in our hearts for Jesus. This is a stunning thought.
I pray that we would come to know this love more and more and that it would be the treasure we cherish above all things. Father, help us to love as you love…not with sentiment or human efforts, but to love in the power of your Name. Amen.
