“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. (John 5: 24)
Life is found in a person. That person is Jesus Christ. God sent His only Son so that a person can choose to have life forever with Him. It is a choice. One hears the word of God and believes. Belief is grounded in the Holy Bible because it speaks of Jesus. Death has been overcome by Jesus Christ. It was defeated on the cross. He proved it by His resurrection on the third day.
Believers have the same victory over death. They are not under God’s judgment, but they have received vindication from their belief in Jesus. They receive an acquittal for their sins and are forgiven. Jesus is the bridge that one crosses to get from death to eternal life. This awesome gift is to be offered freely to the nations through evangelism and missions.
Challenge: Believer, spread the message of eternal life be shared with many so they have the opportunity to choose. Amen!
