II Timothy 1:12
Eternal life is knowing God:
Being loved and cared for by him;
I am loved by him,
And Yeshua Lord is mine.
The best thing in life is to know God –
My father, my Shepherd, my King divine.
Joy not dim
Is this fellowship so fine.
We can know God in the manner of a child knowing his father – the child looking up to the father he knows – the father taking responsibility for the child. This is so because through Yeshua/Jesus we have contact to our Father by his Ruach Kodesh/Spirit; which turns strangers and foreigners into family and fellow citizens with the saints in the household of God. We who know him (because he allows us to) are loved and cared for by him. (We may not feel it at times but we know it is true because he says so and he cannot lie.) Knowing God develops love for his family – the attitude of being his child. The evidence that we are children of God is the avoidance of sin. We know he is blameless, so we know, because we are born of him, we must do the right thing as well. Seeing Yeshua/Jesus and being like him is the hope of the Father’s family. That very hope makes us pure.
Prayer: To you who are the God of our Lord Yeshua Ha Mashiach, the Father of glory, I come boldly as a child and ask that you will further bring light to the eyes of my understanding so I may know what is the hope of my calling and what are the riches of the glory of my inheritance in the saints. It is you who has qualified me to be a partaker of the legacy in the saints in light. Thank you Lord. And blessed be the name of the Lord God from this time forth and forevermore.
