Knowing Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Last Sunday we started with the opening of Jesus’ High priestly prayer in which he prayers for his glorification. Now within the first 5 verses of Jesus’ opening there were two verses we skipped over last Sunday. It has to do with the meaning of eternal life. Let me read it again. “For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent”. This is such a loaded two sentences that I decided they deserved to be a focus just by themselves. Because Jesus is giving us the very definition of eternal life here. And part of that definition involves having two personal relationships. One with the Father and the other with the Son. This involves wrestling once again with the Trinity and so today I am going to focus on these words of Jesus, when he says, this is eternal life that they know the only true God and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
