John 17:3 (NIV) — 3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
God is the Author of Life
As we embark on this spiritual journey, we need to understand that God is the author of life and our life is a gift from God and we will give an account of our lives. Knowing that God is the author of our lives and our lives have a purpose, we can now live in accordance with His will and glorify Him in all areas of our life. If we do not acknowledge God as the author of our lives, we then are subjected to God’s wrath.
Establishment of God’s Kingdom
We must also understand that God has established His kingdom in this hostile world and we are involved in the spiritual warfare. How do we overcome this spiritual warfare? we overcome the spiritual warfare by knowing and loving God–personally and logically.
2 Timothy 3:16–17 (NIV) — 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
