“Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” John 17:3
Eternal life begins, now! That is one of Jesus' messages in the Gospel of John. For sure, we don't get to enjoy all of the blessings which await us when we go home to the Father. But, Jesus wants us to know and to experience His love and the Father's presence in our lives, now! He even prayed it for us! So let's seek the Father — not to just know about Him, but to know Him!
God the Father longs to draw near to us and will do so as we draw near to Him! He is at work in us, so the real issue isn't His nearness, but our awareness of His presence and work. Let's open our eyes and our hearts to our Father, and ask Him to reveal His presence to us!
It’s not about US, It’s ALL about GOD!! On today, help someone along the way!!
