Eternal Life

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

Salvation comes when we believe God for it. We can’t earn eternal life; the Lord gives it to us when we trust Him.  Accepting something, not doing something, comes from belief. Without faith, we can’t access eternity. Jesus leaves us with two options: believe or perish. Belief comes with eternal life, accepting the gift from God, and living in His blessings. Perish means living apart from the Lord in utter futility, losing all that makes existence worthwhile. God gives us the choice; we can decide what life we want.

Many people choose to perish. They do not believe in the Creator, placing their belief in nothing. And as the saying goes, those who stand for nothing will fall for anything. People put their faith in something: work, family, sports, material things, or science. Whether they recognize their belief system or not, they have faith. Atheists believe the sun will rise, yet don’t give God credit for it. Scientists believe in theories, not realizing the Lord originates all things, even the tiniest molecule. Billionaires believe in their money, not giving God credit for their wealth. On and on the list goes for what people place their faith in other than the Almighty.

But as for me, I choose Jesus. Author of life, provider of strength, and guide for my journey; I have all I need in Him. And so do you. God promises eternal life for those who accept His gift. Choose wisely. Stand for Jesus and receive abundant life in Him.


God promises eternal life.


Lord, thank You for the gift of eternal life through Jesus. Help us accept the gift, knowing we can do nothing to earn it, but we can receive it by faith. Soften hearts, return people to You, and help them obtain what Jesus offers.
