We are one

John 17
22 The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; 23 I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me. 24 Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
25 “O righteous Father, although the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me; 26 and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

Every day I pray for the Lord to show me a little more about Himself. It is as we know Him that we grow and function as the human creature that God made us to be. Last night I had a peculiar dream. I saw a lone man and I saw the Holy Spirit enter into that man and took on the shape of that man. The man had been walking, but now he was walking with the Spirit within Him. Since the Spirit was invisible (don’t ask me how I could see the invisible, it was a dream after all), the man and Spirit were operating as one. The Spirit and the man were communicating with one another without even using words. Strange dream. I’m not sure the words here are adequate to convey what I actually saw, but it gives you something to think about.

There is a sweetness to the above scriptures that conveys to me that God is eager to impart this glory to us, that His Holy Spirit is within us. The Trinitarian God is within us. We then are joined to each other as a body of Christ, as one! Beautiful. Think about it!
