Life Eternal

JOHN 3:36 NKJ 


 "He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."

 Eternal life changes the nature of a person: turning them into someone who cares for others. Eternal life enables people to overcome selfishness.

Many people are afraid that God's Word will put them in bondage -- because of the rules they think they will have to follow. But Jesus said God's Word would make you free


Jesus should be our focus -- not the things we do for Him -- not religious activity -- not people -- but the person of Jesus, the Lord and Christ.

1 CORINTHIANS 1:9 NIV 


God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.

All who acknowledge the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord belong to His Body, which is the Church.

ROMANS 10:9 NKJ 


that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved

All men want eternal life, they are afraid to die, they hold death in their hearts wondering what the next day holds, they are always trying to make works to show they are good, but even if we are trying to work our way to heaven it won't work, even if we have been good, it doesn't matter. The only way is through Jesus. If we confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and in our hearts believe God has raised Him from the dead we will be saved.

People act like it is so hard to get to heaven, it only takes a choice, our choice..to believe and to except.

We will all bow before Him one day, PHILIPPIANS 2:10 NKJ  says 

that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,

Notice that it is at the Name of Jesus, not just to the person of Jesus, that every knee will bow. As true believers in Jesus Christ, we are members of His body, and joint-heirs in His authority.


To love Him like no other is so rewarding, and its hard to figure out why others can't see the wonderful sacrifice HE made on the cross for us, to die for someone so they can live is the most wonderful act of selfless love I have ever seen. Only Jesus can give life, eternal life..let's lift up our eyes to the heavens and Praise Him, the only one that can change who we are.

Suppose there is a book written by Elvis' number one fan. This book then became the standard book on Elvis. All Elvis fans read this book and quote passages from this book to endorse what a great entertainer that Elvis was. One Elvis fan quotes certain passages and congratulates that Elvis fans are all awesome for knowing who the number one entertainer is. Now, please change Elvis to Jesus. Then, change the number one fan (who wrote the book on Elvis) to St. Paul. You, of course, is the fan who quotes the book. I hope you will do more than just quote scriptures and make comments. I would be more interested in knowing how you became a Christian in real life. Quoting scripture is too boring, to be honest with you. After all, anyone can quote the Bible.
