“…Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!" – John 1:29 (NKJV)

If our heavenly Father hadn't decided before the very foundation of the world to love us, where would we be?

He made a choice to love us so that we could have permanent fellowship with Him. 

We have a choice everyday whether we are going to love Him back. Will we daily commune with Him after He died for that intimate fellowship to exist, or are we just going to let one day slip into the next? Will we allow His sacrificial death to be one for the history books, having no bearing on our everyday lives? 

Peter, James and John were the disciples closest to Jesus while He was on this earth, they were invited by Him so that they could see His transfiguration as His face shone before the Father. Why were they taken by Jesus to go and not the others? I believe it was because they daily sought Him, wanting to be as intimate as possible with their Lord. That is what Jesus seeks from each one of us. 

But the closest of the disciples to Jesus was John. When we entrust what we care about most to someone, that speaks volumes. Jesus chose John to entrust the care of His mother to.

I long for that type of intimacy with my Lord, I want Him to trust me as He did John.

Great devotion; may we all be inspired to walk closer with the Lord daily. "Jesus chose John to entrust the care of his mother to" is a little awkward. "Jesus entrusted John with the care of his mother." or "Jesus chose John to care for his mother." works better. Also, I think the last sentence needs a semi-colon or a period, as you have two complete sentences there. God bless you for challenging us with this piece.
