Jesus calls himself the stairway. Prophets like Isaiah and John the baptist, we're calling Jesus the light, the Anointed One, the Messiah. But here at the end of this chapter, Jesus calls himself the stairway, verse 51, I tell you the truth, you will all see heavens open and the angels of God going up and down on the Son of Man, the one who is the stairway, between heaven and earth. Jesus has come to unite heaven and earth, to bring the two together. He is the self described stairway between both. This is Jesus' dream for the world, union with God. He beckons us to pray God's Will on earth as it is in heaven. Jesus has made this union a reality in His incarnation, His Atonement, His ascension. That's the gospel. And now he invites the whole world to live in this new reality. He is the stairway and he is inviting us to take steps with him in this life, the life that he shares with the Father and the Spirit. He has come to call us to follow him like Nathaniel sitting there Earthbound under his tree. He invites him and us to see something greater...union between God and man, Union, between heaven and earth. Jesus is the stairway. In Him we can move out from under our trees, upward and forward. Receiving grace, strength, light and hope. As we follow Him, the stairway, seeing greater things, living in the reality of our union with God. That's the prayer that I have for my own soul. That's the prayer that I have for my family for my wife, my daughters, my son. And that's a prayer that I have for you. May it be so
