John 17:3


John 17:3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.


Father, you alone are the true God.  Yet in my sinful flesh I have my own gods (idols), be they lust or greed, arrogance or pride, selfishness or laziness.  I turn your blessings of family, work, or hobbies into idols when they take precedence over you and your will. All these may seem to offer fulfillment, but they don’t.  Only Jesus offers me that fulfillment as he gives me true peace and lasting joy.  He freely and generously gives me the forgiveness I need for my sinful idol worship.  He grants me eternal life in heaven!  Fill me with the contentment that comes from knowing you better and serving and obeying you, my God and Savior.  Amen.
