The following is the definition of Eternal Life:
John 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they many know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent.
John 17:3 are words in red in my Bible in a sea of red words uttered by our Savior and First Love. John chapters 14, 15, 16, and 17 are nearly exclusively red with a verse in black thrown in here and there. In my Bible John 17 is given the title "The High Priestly Prayer". And it is Jesus praying to the Father. It is in this prayer that we find this divine definition of Eternal Life.
Knowing God IS Eternal Life.
No wonder Moses asked God to let him know Him. No wonder Hosea urges the children of Israel to press on to know Him.
And remember the scripture in our December 9th post? (Personal Study/Journey)
John 5:39 You search the scriptures because you think in them you have eternal life; and in is these that bear witness of Me;
vs 40 and you are unwilling to come to me that you may have life.
This world is full of death. And there are those that hate us, either because we are Christian or women or both. There is one who wants to steal from, kill and destroy us and will use anyone he can to do the job, even misguided Christians. But Jesus came that we might have Life and have it more abundantly. (John 10:10)
Knowing God IS eternal life.
So press on to know Him. The more you know Him here, the more life you have, the higher you can ascend, the more you can do to make a real difference and share the Lover of our souls, the source of eternal life, with others.
