“And eternal life is this: to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” (John 17:3)
Is it possible to know the depths of the sea? 70% of the surface of our planet is covered by the oceans and every time we trawl the depths, we encounter new species of animals.
Even those that we know exist, such as the giant squid, we know little about due to the depths which they inhabit.
If we cannot even know much about the life and habits of just one sea creature, what more about the only true God, Who is infinitely more than the oceans and seas?
Thankfully, Jesus gives us Himself as a more accessible Way to eternal life.
For though we will never completely know Christ, we can at least know more about Him through the Church He established and the teachings that we have received from the Apostles.
We can know what He commands of us to do if we choose to respond and be His friends.
The question is; what do I know of Jesus? Do I want to know more about Him or the world?
