Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. – John 17:3

Eternal life is knowing God. To “know” is the Greek word ginosko, which means to intimately become acquainted. Are you intimately acquainted with Jesus?

Many times we confuse knowing Christian doctrine with knowing God; but all the Scriptural knowledge in the world does no good if we don’t know Jesus. Sometimes we confuse religion with knowing God; yet religion and relationship are very different ways of life.

God invites you into relationship with Him! You don’t have to wait until you get to Heaven to meet God. Ask Him for an encounter here and now! Eternal life – perpetual joy – starts the moment you become intimately acquainted with Jesus Christ.


Father, I want to know You: to become intimately acquainted with You through Your Son Jesus Christ. I know I can have a restored relationship with You because of the Cross, and I will thank You for it every day!
