Jesus couldn’t have been clearer when He said that eternal life was to know the only true God and His Son whom He sent. In other words, eternal life isn’t just living forever, it’s living forever in relationship with the Father and the Son through the power of the Holy Spirit. This doesn’t come, as many would suggest, through moral and religious efforts. It comes through faith in the gospel. The gospel is the good news that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and was raised from the dead. When you believe in Jesus your sins are forgiven, you are born again spiritually and brought into relationship with Him. To know Jesus doesn’t only mean to know information about Him, it means to experience Him forever!

Pray this prayer from your heart:
Heavenly Father, I repent for being master of my own life and living separate from You. I turn away from my sin and I turn towards You. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that You raised Him from the dead. I receive You, Jesus, as my Lord and my Savior. I welcome You, Holy Spirit, into my life to empower me and to restore me to intimacy with my heavenly Father. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
Congratulations and welcome to the family of God! If you prayed that prayer, the Bible teaches that you have been saved - you have been spiritually re-born and made brand new!
