Daily Gospel Devotional 2013: The gospel truth

John 21:24-25…

John had been an eyewitness of these things, and what he was writing was the truth. We can know of the hope of eternity right now. We can share in the joy of the knowledge of the Son of God (1 John 1:1-3 / cf. 2 Peter 1:16). The truth is that the gospel gives fullness to our lives.

Think about how incredibly remarkable it must have been to have seen all of this and to have been personally, intimately involved with perfection in action for three whole years. Imagine, each little moment of each and every day, full of wonder, awe, majesty, and mystery, the miraculous movement of God Himself amongst you. No wonder John had such a hard time trying to fit even a tiny portion of the wonder of the Son of God into a few powerful pages. The full truth of the gospel is too much to contain in mere or many words.

Still, think of what it will be like to know fully this divine dream in reality, for all eternity, with perfect knowledge of what is happening as it occurs. Imagine being fully involved in it, with no chance for sinful reactions. And we will have all of eternity to chronicle our journey with Jesus.

Yet we won’t have to, we’ll just all live them together, forever. We will enjoy full knowledge, full experience, full participation, and full satisfaction. That’s the gospel truth.
