What Is…?

Dear Diary,

What is Eternal Life?  John 17:3 says, “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”  Jesus wants us to know Him.  “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.” (Philippians 3:10).

What is Truth?  John 17:17 says, “Sanctify them through thy truth: Thy word is truth.”

What is Christianity?  “The bedrock of Christianity is repentance.  Strictly speaking, a man cannot repent when he chooses; repentance is a gift of God” (Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, p.342).

What is Repentance?  Repentance is confessing our sins to God.  “Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight.” (Psalm 51:4).

Thought for Today:  Examine yourself to see if you have forgotten how to cry.
