John 17:22

“And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me.”

Read again the words Jesus spoke above and let them ruminate in your heart.

As you contemplate this prayer that Jesus made to God…do you get the feeling that the meaning of life is so much deeper than simply assenting to a set of beliefs?

Jesus was speaking of a certain Oneness of all things that goes beyond any left-brained, intellectual explanation.

Jesus was attempting to put into words a mystery that could only be approached if the right side of your brain was engaged…the side that deals with creativity, awe and wonder.

Jesus said that God’s love makes all of us one…and that we are being brought to perfection in this Oneness.

Is there anything to fear in this? No!

Rest in that.
