"The Most Important Relationship"
Part 3 - Who Christ Is To God, and To Us
A sparrow does not fall to the ground without its Heavenly Father. Not a hair of our head falls to the ground without being numbered by our Heavenly Father. And not a drop of the Lord Jesus Christ's blood fell to the ground without our Heavenly Father seeing it as far more than adequate to atone for our sins and establish eternal relationship with all who believe (Matthew 10:29; Luke 12:7; Ephesians 1:7).
Who Christ is, what He has done, is doing, and will do for us must more and more become the laser like focus of our hearts and minds. As it does, we will more and more join our Heavenly Father in how He views the Person and work of His beloved Son. He is so completely satisfied with our Savior's redemptive work on our behalf that He receives trusting hearts no less than He welcomed the Lord Jesus' perfectly faithful heart when He returned to Heaven by way of death, resurrection, and ascension. "For through Him we have access by one Spirit unto the Father" (Ephesians 2:18). Yes, who Christ is to the Father forever provides our entrée to the most sublimely termed "Throne of grace," available to all who come freely enrobed in the Savior's righteousness (Hebrews 4:16).
Certainly, God loves each of His trusting sons and daughters in the most personal terms. Numbered hairs tell us that. However, the most important relationship to all remains the eternal bond of love between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The more we know what this means, the more we know what it means that God loves us and that He loves others. We were made to discover this wonder of who our triune Lord is, and having discovered it, to set forth to know more, forevermore. Yes, who Christ is to God, as revealed unto and within us by the Holy Spirit, serves as the shining light whereby who Christ is to us leads us in love, peace, joy, and power.
"That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ."
(I John 1:3)
