“Have Life?”(John 5:39-40)

“You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.” (John 5:39-40)

A diligent search is being done for a lost item. Every place is checked to see where the lost item might have gone. The pillows are removed from the sofa. The automobile is canvassed as well as the parking garage. The search is continued until that item is located. The owner deems it to be important. It must be found.

Jesus was teaching the religious people of the day about their search. Their search was for eternal life. They were searching God’s word, the Holy Bible, for it. They were dissecting the Scripture diligently to find this way to live forever. There was a problem with their search. The Holy Bible spoke about Jesus as the way, yet they refused to come to Him. Their refusal meant that they would miss eternal life.

Challenge: Believers, let the Holy Spirit lead you into the Scriptures and how they testify about Jesus, God’s only Son!

Jesus=Eternal Life!

"Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them."(John 3:36)  Accepting Jesus is telling God, "I believe in the one You sent and I receive life through Him!
