Uniting Desires

For the past few days I have been meditating on Jesus’ words in John 17:24.  It says, “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.”  His desire was that we would behold His glory.  In verse 22 He said, “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one.”

He wants us to be one with Him.  He wants us to see His glory.  It is all too amazing. Ephesians 5:17 says, “Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.  His will and His desire is the same.

John 15:7 says, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.”  The Amplified uses the words: abide vitally united to Me, and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts.

What is your inmost desire?  Is it to be one with the Lord?  Do you desire such a deep intimate communion with Him that nothing on this earth can rival?  If so, then your desire has united with His.

We behold His glory through His Word and it transforms us in the deepest part of our being, our bone marrow.
