“To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life.”(Romans 2:7)
Believers are taught in the Holy Bible to do good works. These are not to be saved by them, but they speak of new life in Jesus Christ. One must have the attitude of not giving up. Believers are to keep going and do good to honor God, the Father. This is a part of faith. Seeds of goodness are sown into others and rewards are reaped.
God has said that eternal life is reaped through doing good. Eternal life is found in the belief in His only Son, Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit facilitates this life with Godly characteristics. These include love, joy, faithfulness, and kindness. These give Him glory and honor. Believers showing these traits in their life are receiving the Kingdom of God, immortality, and eternal life.
Challenge: Believer, life is found in the Jesus and should be reflected in one’s good works toward others. Don’t get tired of doing right!
The road to life is narrow. Only a few find this road that leads to life. The Holy Bible states:
"Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road is easy that leads to destruction, and there are many who take it. For the gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it."
Know Jesus, Know Life
Knowledge can be found in various places. Life is gained through the knowledge of one person, Jesus Christ. Jesus said about Himself,
"Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."(John 14:6)
Doing Good - Producing Fruit
Believers have life and show this by exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit. Believers do good and reap eternal life!
"8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life."(Galatians 6:8)
