KEY SCRIPTURE 1 John 5:11. ” And this is that testimony (that evidence): God gave us eternal life, and this life is in His Son”.
There are various forms of life. There is plant life. There is animal life. There is also human life. There is finally a divine life. The kind of life of the creature determines its quality and unique characteristics. The natural life of every human is called ‘psuche” in Greek. Romans 7:14 said the following in reference to this natural life
“We know that the Law is spiritual; but I am a creature of the flesh [carnal, unspiritual], having been sold into slavery under [the control of] sin”. This natural life is a fallen nature and controlled by the forces of this life. Sin is not only an action it is supernatural evil power that has absolute control over man’s carnal flesh. Our answer is a supernatural life far superior to sin.
The Lord Jesus came into this life to give His life, which is a supernatural life to mankind, so we could be free from Satan and the evil forces in this life. John 10:11 KJV ” I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.” The life that the Lord Jesus gave to us is called, eternal life. 1John 5:11 KJV And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Every man who surrenders to the Lordship of Jesus receives eternal life.
Dear brother you were born with a natural life which is prone to sin, sicknesses and Satan’s control. Jesus gave His life as a sacrifice so we could become superior to Satan, and his works, why would you continue to live for yourself and remain a slave to sin and its evil powers? There is a life of peace, power and victory, just as Jesus himself demonstrated when He was here. Surrender your life to Jesus today and escape the corruption that is in the world. 2Peter 1:4 KJV “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust”.
Life is full of corruption and misery. The solution is to have this divine life. When you surrender your life to Jesus, to become Lord over your life, He imparts His divine life into you. This is your moment to receive eternal life. Romans 10:9, Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and, in your heart, believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
As the scriptures teaches, from my heart I confess Jesus as my Lord. I believe he rose up to life after His burial. Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul.
1John 5:13 ISV “I have written these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life”.
