You Have Eternal Life

You Have  Eternal Life

“You have  eternal life.”     Boy!     That sure would be  good news  —  if it were  for real.     And…  it really is  for real  when we believe  God’s word  telling  what Jesus  has done  for us.    That’s it  —  when we believe  God’s eternal word  and know for sure  that God is  eternally true,  faithful,  loving,  and merciful.

Those who don’t believe God’s many  promises  of eternal salvation  throughout the Bible,  sadly do not  “have eternal life”.     Why?     Because they are rejecting  faith in Christ Jesus’ shed blood  that pays  for all our sins.

Just a few  of the many verses  that specifically assure  believers  that they certainly do have  eternal life  include:

These things  I have written  to you  who believe  in the name  of the Son  of God,  so that  you may know  that you have  eternal life.     1 John 5:13

He  who has believed  and has been baptized  shall be saved;  but he who has disbelieved  shall be condemned.     Mark 16:16

For God  so loved the world,  that He gave His only begotten Son,  that whoever believes  in Him  shall not perish,  but have eternal life.     John 3:16

He who believes  in Him  is not judged;  he who does not believe  has been judged already,  because he has not believed  in the name  of the only begotten  Son of God.     John 3:18

So what is holding anyone back  from accepting God’s word?     Some are  of the opinion  that we must stop sinning,  before God can accept us.     They go on to claim  that we must do tons  of good works  to earn our way  into heaven  and make ourselves worthy.     They know deep down inside  they never have stopped sinning,  but they try  to hide their sins.

With an inner misery,  they know they’ll never be good enough  to go straight  to heaven.     But,  God says  we only need  to “believe”  that Jesus’ sacrifice  has already paid the penalty  for all our sins.     Fulfill God’s requirements  by just believing Him.

Believing  God’s holy word,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord Jesus,  thank You  for paying the penalty  for absolutely all our sins.”

Love,
Margaret
