“ Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You,  as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should[a] give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.  And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, andJesus Christ whom You have sent.  I have glorified You on the earth.” – John 17:1-4 (NKJV)
Some people equate eternal life with heaven. In this scripture, Jesus clearly shows us that eternal life isn’t about going to heaven but actually getting to know Him! This is a paradigm shift for most because it isn’t saying to know of Him or about Him but to actually know Him. “Know” is an interesting word and in the GREEK it means Knowing through relationship & experience. God desires that we build a deeply intimate relationship with Him so He can express Himself through us!
Application For The Day:
I will take time to “know” Jesus more in a way that is pleasing to Him, and God will get the ultimate glory.
Prayer For The Day:
Lord, I pray that you would reveal yourself to me in a new light. I ask that our relationship will go to new heights, I desire to know you in a more intimate way so I can fully express who you are. Show me your glory Lord so I can glorify you, in Jesus’ Name.
