2013 READING the BIBLE in a YEAR Today’s Readings: 2 Samuel 20 / John 17
We really want to complicate it, we really want to make it a lot of work. We are constantly thinking there must be more to it. SALVATION – ETERNAL LIFE. Here’s what Jesus has to say, John 17: 3 [NLT] And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.
So what’s it mean “to know you”? I guess this is where it could get really complicated, philosophical, intellectual, spiritual, or enigmatic. Or we could simple ask, So, what’s is like not to know him? Who?
Bottom line for me. I have eternal life because I know the only true God, I know Jesus. How do I know? I just know! Simple enough.
