What is eternal life? It seems like something that’s going to happen later doesn’t it? Something to look forward to or to hope for upon death.

But Jesus says in John 17:3: “And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.

My Bible’s notes say this verse is the only biblical definition of eternal life.

You don’t get eternal life when you die. It’s knowing God through Jesus now! And how do we know Jesus now? He said it’s when we take care of the poor, feed the hungry, be servant-leaders and love.

This eternal life is ours for the taking, not ours for the waiting. What grace is this!

Today a number of us are serving with Extreme Community Makeover in west Denver. Tomorrow we gather to “remember” Jesus with us, for us and among us. We’ll be looking for you at 9 and 10:30 a.m.

Thanks be to God for the gifts of LIFE!

Grace and peace,
