Eternal Life

In John 17:3, Jesus stated, "And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God and Jesus Christ whom you sent."  Jesus put what eternal life was in a nutshell.  Eternal life is to know the only true God and Jesus Christ whom you sent.  Life is broken down into one statement.  To know God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  There are many voices in this world that try and tell you what life is all about.  The person who does finances will tell you it is all about accumulating wealth.  The fitness guru will tell you it is about being healthy.  The environmentalist will tell you it is about saving the planet and the social activist will tell you it is about saving the world.  Jesus said it was about knowing who God is and what He is about.  The will of God and eternal life are about knowing God.  Jesus Christ is the avenue through which we come.  The exciting thing about the Christian life is that you can spend this lifetime and eternity getting to know God.  Jesus said, in John 10:10 that He came to give us life abundant.  This wonderful eternal life has so many benefits.  You learn how to love, walk in peace and truly get connected with God.  So today make it you aim to get to know the Lord better.  Spend some time in prayer, read the Bible and have an open heart.  God wants you to know Him.  He has plans, dreams and a destiny for you.  He wants to show you how to love, accept and forgive others and the beautiful thing is, He is only a prayer away.
