There is No Other Verse That Defines Eternal Life in Such Plain Language
And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent (John 17:3 ESV).
How would you define eternal life? John gives the definition in one of my favorite Bible verses - John 17:3.
“And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent” (John 17:3 ESV).
There is no other passage or verse that defines eternal life in such plain language. The word eternal forces you to think of life that lasts forever. And certainly it does. But here Jesus speaks to the quality of eternal life. Here are just a few of the reasons I love this verse.
If you haven’t given this verse much thought before, hopefully this devotional will inspire you to give it a fresh look. When I did, it helped me see that I could experience eternal life here and now. This truth will impact every area of your life. You, too, can know Jesus intimately and personally.
