John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
Jesus tells what eternal life is in this verse. It is to know the only true God and Jesus Christ. That sums it up pretty simply doesn’t it!
What is life? Just knowing Jesus!
I think that sounds a lot harder than it is to many of us. We think-what does that mean? But we really understand it.
What would you have said was living before you married the love of your life? 37 years ago Betty and I were about to get married. For me I knew that meant that I was really going to live and I have.
What is life? What would I have said then? I would have said that if I could just love Betty, spend life with Betty, the rest wouldn’t have mattered- I would have been living.
Now here we are! What is eternal life? It is Jesus. It is God. It is knowing Him and loving Him!
