“I am glorified in them…. I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them…. I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one.” John 17:10, 26, 23

O glorious promise! How could He love us more! What blessed and intimate union is this! O for such a faith as could always truly believe it!

  • Christ is the Vine; believers are the branches
  • He the Bridegroom, they the bride
  • He the Head, they the members of His body

We are of His very flesh and bones, and consequently, one body with Him. And whoever hated his own flesh? In loving and cherishing believers, He loves Himself (Ephesians 5:28-29). Whenever He shall cease to love Himself, then, and no sooner, will He cease to cherish them also. It is His own delight to do them good, more than the mother’s to protect and nourish her child.

  • He is ours, and we are His — one with Him, dear to Him as the apple of His eye.
  • Having loved His own that are in the world, He loves them unto the end.
  • Having once brought us into union with Himself, He will preserve the union.

Thus He glorifies Himself in us, performing in us all the good pleasure of His goodness, and the work of faith with power. O Jesus, reveal Your Father’s name to me more fully and more powerfully!
