The preponderance of God's revelation is overwhelming
when it comes to his desire to be with us at all times. Why
would the Almighty and infinite God choose to be with us
all the time? Because he loves us. From the beginning of
human existence God wanted to enhance our life through
sharing with us his own divine life. Even after sin entered
the world, God did not abandon us, but promised to be
with us and reconcile us to himself, so that we can share
in his divine life. To accomplish this, God took on fresh so
that he can be visibly and physically with us. He is
Emmanuel, God with us. But the ultimate desire of God is
to share his life with us, to draw us into deeper union and
intimacy with him. Jesus expressed this through the
parable of the vine and the branches. He taught this when
he shared that the Father and he would come to us and abide within us. Our God desires to be with us and in us,so that we can be with him and in him. Wonderful mystery!
