John 17:26

"I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.”

 Jesus came to do one thing, namely to reveal just who is the God of Heaven, the creator of all that is seen and unseen.  In fact, he is the image of the invisible God (Col 1:15), the full revelation of the Divine Father.  He and the Father are two persons of one being so all that whoever has seen Christ has seen the Father. (John 14:9)  The strangest thing is, that we do not die when we look upon Jesus, but we live.  Generally, no one can see the LORD and live. (Ex 33:20)

But God made a way so that we could not only see him, but eat with him and dance with him and not be completely destroyed by his holiness.  We can touch him and be healed and not destroyed. It means that God is innately a God with us and a God for us.  He is a God who desires to be known by us and who desires relationship with us.

And not only that, the result of his continuing to make known to us the Father is that we fall deeper in love with him.  And as Christ is in the Father, so we will be in Christ when we look upon him truly as who He is, being transformed into the very image of God.
