“And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”
Eternal life is the kind of life that comes from truly knowing God. How can a person know God? Through Jesus Christ whom he sent into the world to create a bridge between us and God!
Don’t try to be super clever and complicate what is really simple. There is only one true God. Knowing him brings a different quality of life—the life we were created to live. God sent Jesus into the world to make a way for us to be right with God and start a relationship with him. Jesus did that by dying on the cross in our place so that we could be forgiven.
Our forgiveness removes the barrier between us and God. With forgiveness comes adoption into God’s family and the beginning of life with God in it. It’s so different that it’s like you were born again and have a new life.
There are many ways to express this truth, but these simple truths will always be there at the heart of the gospel (our good news)!
