We have a wonderful counselor in Jesus Christ, a good shepherd who teaches his sheep.
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” John 17:3
This is an excerpt from Jesus’ intercessory prayer for all believers. It’s important to understand that God desires relationship with his children. That’s why he provided salvation, because sinful people need a saviour. In order to be set free from the penalty of sin, which is death, we need cleansing from sin. Faith in the atoning blood of the perfect Lamb of God provides cleansing from sin. The Lamb of God not only died as sacrifice for sin, but rose again to life with a transformed perfect body. This is the hope of all believers in the Son of God, that one day we too will have a glorified body like that of Jesus Christ. It’s not enough to simply know the facts about Jesus. Satan knows about Jesus too. To know God is to have a meaningful relationship with him. Invite Jesus to come into your life as Saviour and Lord! Read his Holy Word, the Bible, his love letter to those he created. You will discover the secret of an abundant, happy life. The story I wrote about the Jewel family during the Vietnam war era is about walking with God through confusion, disappointment, changes, aging and discovering a peaceful rest in the loving arms of the Heavenly Father.
