And yet no one has ever gone up to heaven, but there is One Who has come down from heaven–the Son of Man [Himself], Who is (dwells, has His home) in heaven. (John 3:13 AMP)
How did Jesus know His home was heaven? Did He glimpse it in His mind and immediately sense not only is that where He belonged but that’s where He came from? Did He savor the glimpse and long for more? Did our Father show Him the Mercy Seat and the Holiest of Holies and the throne and the streets? Did His Father show Him His Father’s face?
I love Jesus that He would leave that, leave Him for me. I don’t deserve that sacrifice, much less the one that ended at the cross that day. I want to worship Him. We love a triune God who left behind, let go,abandoned, forsook, sacrificed for me and you. We owe Him our hearts.
