YES!

The Triune God is love.  And this love is expressed towards us as God Himself comes among us as the man Jesus.  Jesus is the God of love as a human among humans acting for humans. He is God making our lost cause his own, freely giving himself for our sake. In that action God says YES to us.

So, with our eyes fixed on Jesus, can we see any trace of  neutrality in God towards us?  No! With Jesus in view, we have to say there is no maybe or might be in God.  Nor is there a shifting Yes and No.  For when we look at Jesus, we see that He embodies the Triune God’s eternal decision to be God for us.

Jesus shows us that there has never been any neutrality towards us within the Triune God, none at all!  He has always been the God of all grace who has bound and pledged himself to be our God in Christ.  And in Jesus he gives himself freely to us as our God forever.  So, in the one man Jesus, we see that Father, Son and Spirit are for us, with one mind, one heart, one will, one purpose and one action to bring us home where we belong.

In Jesus, the Father’s Son, God says His emphatic YES to us.   Let us  not greet His YES with our “Yes, But…”  Let us rather say, “YES, YES, YES” to His “YES”!
