Today’s Promise is John 17:3 NKJV:
“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.”
Many strive all their lives to follow a prescribed regimen in order to gain eternal life. Still others believe that all they have to do is recite a simple prayer and eternal life is theirs. But, according to Jesus, eternal life isn’t about what you do. It’s all about who you know. Not who you know about, but who you know. This word in the Greek is Ginosko and is a Hebrew idiom for the physical intimacy between a husband and a wife. It’s that level of intimacy that Jesus is talking about, here. Not on a physical level, but on a spiritual level. Living and working as one. This is what Jesus gave His life to give not only us, but the Father, who desires that level of intimacy with us. When we set our hearts on truly knowing God and His precious Son, we will have eternal life.
Heavenly Father, my heart swells with love when I think of Your desire for me. I want to know You, Lord. I want You to live and move in me every moment of every day. I want to walk with You in my dreams and know Your voice when I wake. Take all of me, Lord, in Jesus’ name. I surrender to You. Amen.
Have a victorious day in the Lord!
