Begin with God … He Gives Eternal Life
In the Word
Who will receive eternal life?
Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life. Revelation 2:10
Of the Word
Jesus says: I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned … (John 5:24a). For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day (John 6:40).
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand (John 10:27–28).
Jesus came to earth to bring life and salvation to all people. Salvation is God's free gift to all who believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose again. No believer will be turned away.
Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life (Revelation 2:10).
Walking with my Lord
Dear heavenly Father, You are the God of love! Every day I am reminded of the blessed assurance of eternal life through Your Son, Jesus Christ. May the Holy Spirit continue to teach me to listen to and follow Your Word. In Jesus' name, who died for all and gives all believers in Him eternal life. Amen.
