Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.

1 John 5:12

In a compartmentalized world, faith is often relegated to something that is a part of our lives but not the core essence of our lives.

I was reading this passage and was brought to the revelation that knowing God is not part of life, but it is the point of life.

Knowing God is the point of this life.

I’m becoming an adult now and at this stage there are things that I would like to see happen in my life–get married, provide for my family, purchase a house, save up for education, etc.. As these questions are looming, and as I read this passage, this questioned dawned upon me–what if I never achieve those things, would I have missed out in my life?

And the Spirit was wooing me as I was meditating on that because in reality there’s no way I can miss out on anything because I’ve achieved the point of life–to know Jesus, and to call him my best friend.

He is the life I’ve always wanted. And anything I achieve in this life pales in comparison to knowing him.
