James 4:8
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”

“Where will you go when you die?”

Maybe you’ve been asked this question before. I’m not saying it’s not an important question. After all, eternity is a long, long time. And there is no greater hope than to be with Jesus in paradise forever.

But here’s a thought – more important than where you go is who you know.

Life is all about relationships. And at the top of that is the relationship we were created for from the beginning. The source of life itself. The oxygen our souls were made to consume. I’m talking about a rich, life-giving friendship with God.

Jesus never said eternal life was about heaven. Here’s what He actually said in John 17:3 –

“Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.”

Eternal life is being intimately connected to God in friendship and daily life. And the beauty of that means true, eternal life can start now, not some day when I die.

If your soul feels dry today, return to the source of life. Get close with God. Talk to him all day. Embrace the exciting promise of James 4:8 –

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”
