This has got to be simply the best verse to describe the relationship God has between the Father and the Son. (Obviously there is no mention of the Spirit in this verse but the Bible has lots of examples where that is the case).
“All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” (Matthew 11 v 27)
The Father is the lover; the Son is the beloved and the Spirit is the love that is between them and that unites them. The theological term for this is perichoresis. It basically means that in every divine person as a subject the other persons also indwell, all mutually permeate one another, though they do not cease to be distinct persons. To encounter the one is to encounter the other. The Father is not just the initiator who sits back. In the presence of the Son you are in the presence of the Father and vice versa. This means that you cannot think of them as 3 individual independents outside and apart from each other. To say the Father, Son and Spirit are each God is to say they are one God.
Not Mohammed, Buddha, Zeus, Shiva etc. Only Jesus reveals God. Only in Jesus. Not many roads. One road. Jesus.
Today there are many things you don’t have, you will never have everything even if you had more things. There will be many things you don’t know. You will have more questions than answers. But friends today we can say this one thing, “I know God. The Son has revealed the Father to me and is continuing to do so as I follow Him.”
Today as we pray, we do so in the name of Jesus and he takes us to the throne of God. As we worship Jesus we connect with God. It is all through Jesus.
So if you are sitting today wondering about your life. Asking questions that don’t seem to have answers. When you simply do not know why or what or when or how, Jesus knows all there is to know. Even if he doesn’t reveal what you long to know it is alright. He reveals God to you and He shares the presence of the Divine with you and the triune God, the fullness of God, surrounds you and fills you and hovers over you and guides you and empowers you and opens doors for you and tells you even though you don’t know, He knows and because of that you will make it!
Jesus the revealer!
One day when all is revealed, every one of us will bow our knee and confess in the power of the Holy Spirit that Jesus is the Lord of all creation, to the glory of the Father.
“May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all”. (2 Corinthians 13:14)
