“Consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus (Heb. 3:1). The word ‘apostle’ means a sent one. ‘The Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world’ (1 Jn. 4:14), and in so doing sent the most impressive unforgettable character of all history to represent Him. The fact of the nature of the One by whom Christ was sent into the world should suffice for our giving Him a ready welcome and a great reception. The Father is ‘the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness’ (Jas. 1:17); ‘the Father of spirits,’ who chastens those He loves (Heb. 12:9); ‘the Father of mercies,’ who comforts those in trial (2 Cor. 1:3); and ‘the Father of glory’ (Eph. 1:17), who calls us to glory and virtue (2 Pet. 1:3). In addition to Christ being the expression of the One who sent Him, He has a very important errand; so that when we consider the motive of His mission, the manifesto of His ministry and the message of His mediation by means of which we have access to the Father, we should most certainly welcome Him with gladness and gratitude.(A)”

In your consideration imagine Jesus meeting you face to face saying, “Our Heavenly Father asked me to bring you to him, will you come with me?”
Consider going with Jesus, walking through the courts of heaven into the The Throne Room. Consider watching Father jump off the throne and run toward you with open arms and a huge joyous smile on his face. Experience Father embracing you, how strong and gentle he is, how wonderful he smells and how loved you feel. Listen to the Host of Heaven rejoicing. Walk with Father back to his throne and jump into his lap after he sits down. Notice the joy Jesus is experiencing as he sits down with you and Father. You are home. The longer you enjoy their presence the more you notice that their lap is big enough for every human to be loved and embraced individually and as a family together. It is amazing, absolutely amazing. Being with Father, Son and filled with Holy Spirit is exceedingly abundantly beyond what you could ever ask for or imagine.
You have entered His rest, relax and enjoy.
