"This is he of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who ranks ahead of me because he was before me.’" (John 1:30)
The Trinity is difficult to understand, but a glimpse of its mystery is found in this verse. "He was before me," speaks to Jesus being with God in creation. This is hard to comprehend after so many years of singing, "In the Garden." "And he walks with me, and he talks with me, and he tells me I am one of his own."
The Trinity can leave Jesus with a theologically split personality in our minds. On the one hand, Jesus is a sweet friend who always has time to drop everything and walk in the garden with us. On the other hand, Jesus was a divine change agent who was with the other two persons of the Trinity at the moment of the Big Bang and the creation of the universe. Uff da!
Jesus is a man of mystery, even bigger than James Bond, or cooler than Austin Powers for that matter. He gets his super-power from being part of the God-head. It isn't a split personality at all. Jesus is in all things, just as God is in all things. This same Jesus, totally divine, alive before the creation of the universe, is the same Jesus who wants to walk in the garden with you and me. We are that blessed!
Today, thank God for the powerful love of Jesus. This Jesus, who is infinitely more than just a nice guy to take a walk with, or a powerful part of creation, or the receptacle of all divine wisdom. He is there for you and me, and every person in the entire world. The greatest aspect of Jesus' power is his love. Bask in the love of Jesus, it is more vast than the universe is long. Enjoy him!
