Through the Knowledge Of HIM – Eternal Life

Through the Knowledge Of HIM, we can experience Eternal Life.
After speaking with His disciples, Jesus prayed to the Father for His disciples. In His prayers he mentioned Eternal life – John 17:3 (NIV)
Now this is eternal life: that they know youthe only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
Emphasis Mine

We are looking at the benefits we experience through the knowledge of God and Jesus our LORD or benefits we experience as a result of our knowledge of God and Jesus our LORD.

Jesus is praying for His disciples (we can choose to be His disciples) that they should know God as the only true God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent. Therefore, we experience eternal life through our knowledge of God and Jesus our LORD. And because we have the ability and access to that knowledge while still living on earth, we can begin experiencing eternal life on earth.

Eternal life is not reserved only for the death in Christ. It can be experienced and lived by the living in Christ. Amen.

The disconnect with eternal Life occurs when
a)     We do not believe there is God (…that they know you…)
b)     We believe in many gods (…the only true God…)
c)     We believe there is God, however, he is not the only one and true God (…the only true God…)
d)     We do not understand why Jesus was sent (agreeing that God the Father gave Him to die on the cross for our sins) – (…and Jesus Christ whom you have sent).
e)     We do not believe in God the Father and God the Son (…that they know youthe only true God, and Jesus Christ…).

How else can these truths be made known to us if we are void of HIS knowledge?
