THE WORDS OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST 58.

KEY SCRIPTURE: John 14:6 ” Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.

The Lord Jesus declared, I am the way. What is the way? The gospel or good news is that way.. The gospel is basically the news about the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus. 1st Corinth 15:3&4, put it this way, “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures”: Believing this message concerning the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ ushers a man into eternal life. This is the only way to receive eternal life. .

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”.

Eternal life is not only received after death but   the very moment an individual believes in the Lord Jesus.

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: ….” (John 3:36) Eternal is also the very life of God. John 5:26 ” For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;”

This life in the Son is what is given to us when we believe in Jesus.1 John 5:12  ” He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life”.

What would this eternal life do for you?

Eternal life makes you superior to the devil and gives you victory over him. It helps you to lead the supernatural life. This involves walking in love, Holiness and experiencing the miraculous power of God. Above all these God gives you His peace.

You can be a partaker of eternal life, if you would turn the control of your life unto Him (JESUS)

 CONFESSION
