John 17:3 - Eternal Life is a Supreme Relationship with Jesus 

John 17:3 (NKJV) And this is eternal life, that they may know 
You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. 

   Mine deep enough in every heart and you'll find it: a longing 
for meaning, a quest for purpose. As surely as a child breathes, he 
will someday wonder, "What is the purpose of my life?" 
   Some search for meaning in a career. "My purpose is to be a 
dentist." Fine vocation but hardly a justification for existence. They opt 
to be a human "doing" rather than a human "being." Who they are is 
what they do; consequently they do a lot. They work many hours 
because if they don't work, they don't have an identity. 
   For others, who they are is what they have. They find meaning 
in a new car or a new house or new clothes. These people are great 
for the economy and rough on the budget because they are always 
seeking meaning in something they own ... Some try sports, 
entertainment, cults, sex, you name it. 
   All mirages in the desert of purpose...
   Shouldn't we face the truth? If we don't acknowledge God, we 
are flotsam in the universe. [Grace For The Moment SB By Max Lucado 
re Mark 12:30] 

   For us, knowledge means information, facts, and concepts. But 
in biblical times, knowledge was centered in personal 
relationships. To know someone is to enter into a close relationship with that 
person. Knowing God involves much more than simply mastering facts and 
information about him. It even transcends discussions about the nature and 
character of God, as important as those are.  
   Knowing God means entering into an intimate relationship with 
him. It means identifying with God and learning to view everything as 
God does. Knowing God will transform our thoughts and actions, our 
priorities and values, and our relationships with fellow human beings. It 
is far more important than religious rites, sacrifices, burnt 
offerings, or any other religious activity (Jeremiah 9:23-24; 31:34}. [One 
Year NLT SB re Hosea 4:1, 6] 

   Knowing God through experience is radically different than 
knowing about God from a theology textbook. According to the Bible, you 
cannot say you know God unless you have experienced Him (Php 3:8, 10). 
Biblical knowledge always involves experience...  
   If you have not experienced God's power at work in and 
through your life, do not settle for a secondhand knowledge of God's 
power, rejoicing in what He has done in others. Jesus' prayer was that 
you would come to know God and His presence in your life and 
experience. Don't discount the power of God as described in Scripture simply 
because you have not experienced it. Bring your experience up to the 
standard of Scripture, never reduce Scripture to the level of your 
experience. Don't settle for a head knowledge of God's love. Jesus prayed 
that you would experience the depth and width and height of His love 
and that you would enjoy God's full and unending love in the 
day-to-day experiences of your life. [Experiencing God Day by Day by Henry 
and Richard Blackaby re John 17:3] 

When you seek My face, put aside thoughts of everything else. I 
am above all, as well as in all; your communion with Me transcends 
both time and circumstances. Be prepared to be blessed bountifully by 
My Presence, for I am a God of unlimited abundance. Open wide your 
heart and mind to receive more and more of Me. When your Joy in Me 
meets My Joy in you, there are fireworks of heavenly ecstasy. This is 
eternal life here and now: a tiny foretaste of what awaits you in the 
life to come. Now you see only a poor reflection as in a mirror, but 
then you will see face to Face. (John 15:11; 1 Cor. 13:12) [Jesus 
Calling by Sarah Young] 

   I am with you and all around you, encircling you in golden 
rays of Light. I always behold you Face to face. Not one of your 
thoughts escapes My notice. Because I am infinite, I am able to love you 
as if you and I were the only ones in the universe.  
   Walk with Me in intimate Love-steps, but do not lose sight of 
My Majesty. I desire to be your closest Friend, yet I am also your 
sovereign Lord. I created your brain with capacity to know Me as Friend 
and Lord simultaneously. The human mind is the pinnacle of My 
creation, but so few use it for its primary purpose - knowing Me. I 
communicate continually through My Spirit, My Word, and My creation. Only 
humans are capable of receiving Me and responding to My Presence. You 
are indeed fearfully and wonderfully made! (Psa. 34;4-6; 2Pe. 1:16, 
17; John 17:3; Psa. 139:14) [Jesus Calling by Sarah Young]
