Part 2: God's Eternal Purpose

(This is part 2 of 10 parts in this class)


It was with the very intention of this happening that God purposed in Jesus to remove all that stood between Himself and us. He wanted us to know Him as Dad. Behind His great plan of redemption was this eternal purpose - for you to know Him.


Jesus revealed,

I am come that you might have life.

John 10:10 - KJV


Then later He prayed,

And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

John 17:3 - NKJV


God wants to be known by you. God wants you and me to know Him like Jesus knows Him. He wants us to call Him Dad as Jesus called Him Dad. He wants us to live in His intimate presence just as His Son Jesus does.

(In way of a follow up study to the above look up Mark 14:36 and Romans 8:15. Note while you're studying these verses that the word "Abba" is Hebrew for Dad or Papa.)
