Price: “Eternal life is not a substance, it is a Person, and it is enjoyed by knowing the Person. It is knowing God and knowing Christ.”
I remember reading this in college and having something click inside of me. It’s not about Heaven. It’s about JESUS. Which is why my favorite verse is now John 17:3, which says, “And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”
It reminds me that my eternal life has already begun, since I know Jesus now and will continue to know him forever.
For someone who has religious-themed OCD and scrupulosity, this is like a rock beneath my feet.
