Glory and praise for ever! — Daniel 2:52-56.

‘No one comes to the Father except through me.’

How happy we should be in knowing this, for it means that God has a very special love for us. It is a sign of special friendship to introduce someone into our family, to share the most intimate familial things, and the love and communication that exists between the members.

So too with God. God has unveiled to us the inmost reality of the divine nature, the ‘family’ of the divine Persons. But we are not merely spectators of this life, for God has made us sharers in the love and communication which flow between the Three.

‘No one’, says Jesus, ‘comes to the Father except through me.’ It is through the Spirit of Jesus that we come to Jesus himself through whom we come to the Father.

Hence we pray: ‘Come, Holy Spirit and form me in the likeness of Christ so that the Father may see and love me for it.’
