“Just as the Father has loved me…” – John 15:9
With this statement of Jesus, believers get an inside look on the relationship between the Father and the Son. Jesus knew that He was object of the Father’s love before everything came into existence (John 17:24). While Jesus followers will never know the inner workings of the divine Trinity, what has always been and will always be present in the trinitarian relationship is a depth of love that earthly minds can only begin to understand — one that is pure, perfect, and eternal.
How does the divine love between the Father and the Son impact your life today? In what way do you see this love in your own life?
