To Know Him

In what is known as His great Intercessory Prayer, Jesus prayed, “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” (John 17:3) It is one thing to know of Jesus Christ. It is quite another to KNOW Him. If we would reach that lofty goal, we can begin by keeping His commandments; all of them. He pointed the way..

.By strict obedience Jesus won
The prize with glory rife:
“Thy will, O God, not mine be done,”
Adorned his mortal life.

He marked the path and led the way,
And ev’ry point defines
To light and life and endless day
Where God’s full presence shines.
