Recently I asked a question (on Face Book): “What’s the point of being a Christian?” Needless to say, there was a variety of opinions.
Perhaps when considering the “point” of Christianity we should approach the subject, not considering “our point,” but God’s. Do these verses help to clarify the “point”?
“…that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them… just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us… The glory that you have given me I have given to them…. you may become partakers of the divine nature… And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”
What would happen if we viewed Christianity (and creation itself for that matter) in the context of the Love between Father & Son?
