a life that matters:day four
[Read & meditate on John 17.3. How could this bring about a life of eternal significance?]
“This is eternal life (a life that matters): that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” Jesus came so that we might know God, not just about God, but an intimately dependent relationship with Him. Just like it was originally supposed to be.
Maybe, as someone created in God’s image, I can never truly know who I really am until I begin to know the One in whose image I am created.
Can I really trust God enough to live a life of obedience to Him if I don’t really know Him intimately. They say that rules without relationship leads to rebellion. God has done everything possible to pursue me in relationship. Perhaps, I rebel because I haven’t pursued the relationship. What an incredible mystery! What a beautiful idea!
