Inclusion is where we begin to see Jesus like this

Lord Jesus Christ, beloved and eternal and faithful Son of the Father, Homoousios to Patri, Anointed of the Holy Spirit, incarnate, crucified, and ascended Lord of all creation, we believe in you.  With great joy, with the praise of our whole hearts we acknowledge and agree that you have found us in our darkness and sin, laid hold of us and taken us down in your death, freed us from sin and evil, quickened us with new life in your resurrection, and lifted us up into your Father’s arms in your ascension, and into the communion of the Holy Spirit.  All of us, and ours, every war-torn fragment, every fearful, unbelieving, shame-riddled, broken part are in you, in your Father, in the Holy Spirit.  We rest in you, Jesus, lover of our souls, our Savior, our Salvation, our Saving Act, our King, our Liberator, healer of our broken heart, the author and finisher of our faith. You have included us in all that you are and have in your union and face-to-face communion with your Father, and you have included us in your own anointing in the Holy Spirit.  You have included us in your victory over evil and wickedness, and in your session at the Father’s right hand, above all rule and authority in heaven and on earth.  Nothing can separate us from you, your Father, and the Holy Spirit, and the life you share together.  Blessed be your great name Lord Jesus.
