Eternal life, according to Jesus in John 17:3, is the knowledge of the Triune God. If this is so, then our eternal vocation is to know God and enjoy Him forever. Also, if this holds true, then our endeavors here on earth must be to know Him as much as we can, with a singular and simple focus.
It is often said, rightly, that the whole purpose of our being is so that we may know God, through whom and for whom all things exist, and to enjoy Him forever, in an intimate experiential and mysterious way. Apart from this, we live for nothing else.

I hear that the constitution should not be changed again, because in a country as young as ours, the young need to take the lead. But says who? Others say it should be, to allow able leaders to provide their experienced leadership to the nation. But says who?
In my previous article about the Uniqueness of Jesus Christ, I intended to respond to a brother from Tanzania who wrote to me asking about the character and work of Christ that sets Him apart, and why we ought to follow Him. In response I delighted in writing a series of articles addressing this question that may prove helpful for many. These articles will not be exhaustive, but I hope they will stir up serious thought, that culminates in a personal relationship with Christ as Lord and Savior.
