Morsels for the Marathon

 “This is eternal life:
that they may know You, the only true God,
and the One You have sent—Jesus Christ.” John 17:3

I loved the reminder at church last night of the true definition of eternal life.  It’s not getting to heaven; it’s knowing Christ. Knowing Christ is the ultimate treasure.

I smiled when I heard this theme of God as our treasure being woven through the message. My #OneWord for the year seems to be popping up everywhere I look and everywhere I turn… and it’s only February!

Eternal Life: It’s not a destination. It’s a relationship that can start today...on this side of the pearly gates and streets of gold.  Truly knowing someone requires that we commit to being in relationship with them. We journey with them. We spend time with them. We value them.  We can not truly come to know and trust someone unless we make the choice to carve out intentional time to get to know them.

Last night, I picked up another beautiful breadcrumb.  That’s what I like to call “God-incidences”

I’ve said it before but it came to mind again this morning.  Jesus is the Bread of Life ( John 6:35). If this is true, we will see the breadcrumbs of His goodness scattered along our paths. Every single morsel is significant. Every single morsel provides nourishment. Every single morsel sustains us and gives us energy for the next step.  Oh, my friends, look for the breadcrumbs today! Come, taste, and see!

“Taste and see that the Lord is good. How happy is the man who takes refuge in Him!” Psalm 34:8

“Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness are blessed,
for they will be filled.” Matthew 5:6

“All eyes look to You, and You give them their food at the proper time.”  Psalm 145:15
