“Those who really do know Christ in the modern world do so by seeking and entering the kingdom of God.
To know him in your world now is to live interactively with him right where you are in your daily activities.
This is the spiritual life in Christ.
He is, in fact, your contemporary, and he is now about his business of moving humanity along toward its destiny in this amazing universe.
You don't want to miss out on being a part – your part – of that great project.
You want to be sure to take your life into his life, and in that way to find your life to be “eternal,” as God intended it.
There is a real danger that you will miss out on this involvement with eternity and thereby miss the entire point of your existence.
Eternity is now in process.
Silently it moves along.
But it will not run over you.
You have to really want it -- deep down -- or you will miss it.”
Dallas Willard, KNOWING CHRIST TODAY, page 139
Jesus said, Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. John 17:3
