Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Jesus came to reveal God to us. He has given us the most precise picture of what God is like and how God would interact with us. Because of Jesus, we can know God, the only one who is truly genuine. Because we are in Christ, we can share a special bond with the Father and find a new quality of life in him. This is lasting life that won't end when our bodies die. This is eternal life that begins now (John 5:24), as we walk with him each day, and extends forever (John 3:16-17, 10:25-26). For the eternal and transcendent God to make himself known to us is grace. For him to make himself known to us in Jesus is salvation!

My Prayer...

Holy and awesome Father, I know that I will enjoy your presence forever because my life is joined to you through Jesus. I love you for all you have done for me and the terrible price you paid to redeem me from my sins. I love you for creating me and having a plan for my life when no one else knew I was even conceived. Most of all, I love you for being God and choosing to be the kind of Father who wants his children to know and love him. In Jesus' name. Amen.
