Passage: John 17:1-10
Verse: John 17:3 (NIV 2011)
Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
Well now, that is it in a nutshell. Eternal life is to know the Father… and Jesus Christ whom the Father sent. When Jesus returned to the Father, He sent the Holy Spirit to guide us to all truth. What a blessed Trinity! We can begin to experience eternal life now. The relationship that God wants to have with us involves us learning to know Him… really know Him. May we grow in our knowledge of Him. May we search the Scriptures and trust the Holy Spirit to show us the Truth. May we experience the full message of the gospel as lived out on earth by Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. May we praise Jesus for His prayers and His intervention on our behalf.
