Driven Into An Eternal Relationship Of Oneness
As Christ prepared for His death on the cross, He used the sorrow and grief of His disciples to drive them into a new relationship with Him. He connected them into the same oneness that He Himself already had with the Father: “because I live, you will live also. In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” (John 14:19-20).
In His earthly state, Christ was separated from the Father; yet He could see and hear the Father (John 5:19). This is the mystical relationship of communication and oneness that Christ wanted the disciples to enter into. In that relationship, He would continue to mature them to rule and reign with Him in His Father’s Kingdom.
In the joy of our salvation experience, we lose the impact of what the disciples were experiencing at the time of Christ’s departure. However, all that Christ was imparting to the disciples in their time of sorrow and grief must be our experience. We open our hearts to His impartation that delivers us into a greater relationship of oneness with Him. This is the relationship that matures us to rule and reign with Him.
