John 17 #03, Eternal Life & Glory

John 17:2-3

We tend to think of eternal life in rather limited dimensions. We think of its duration (forever – death is not final) and of its location (with God, perhaps in heaven) and perhaps enjoying future sinlessness. Oh, and being forgiven. On a good day we might extent that to “being with Christ”. In our text today we have Jesus praying about a wonderful dimension of eternal life: That is, God indeed sharing with believers, through union with Christ, that beautiful thing which Isaiah 42:8 says belongs exclusively to the divine being: Glory!
