THE HEAVENLY GIFT PT 2

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

John 17:3

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.

NLT

It is quite clear from the scriptural reference that the way to have eternal life is to know Jesus. What does it mean to know Jesus who is the truth? The bible says you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free so knowing Jesus brings true freedom.

Knowing Jesus begins with believing in Jesus and accepting Him into your heart as your lord and savior. You do this so that you can have a relationship with Him. A relationship with Jesus, just like a relationship with any other person entails constant communication and fellowship (it’s ok to set regular schedules for meeting). There is also a constant link with heaven that keeps us alive as children of God (this one is all the time, without ceasing). This link is the source of our spiritual life. This is our active worship of the father in spirit; where your spirit is in constant connection with the lord; you talk to Him anytime, anywhere and under any condition.

In John 4:10, Jesus said something very remarkable, He said if you know the gift of God and who He is, you would ask and He will give you living water-which is this gift of God and eternal life.

In applying this directly to yourself; you now know what the gift of God is, and you know who Jesus is, the next thing is to do is to ask Him for this living water that causes streams of life to flow out of your inward being. The next stage to having this eternal life is simply asking.

Ask the lord today for the gift that He alone gives; ask Him to give you the living water that you may thirst no more.

Prayer: Dear lord, I thank you for the opportunity to be called your own. I ask that you give me of this living water that is eternal life that I may thirst no more. I ask that out of my inward being shall indeed flow rivers of living waters, in Jesus name I pray. Amen
