KEY SCRIPTURE: John 5:24 KJV “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
The Lord said, he that hears my word and believes on Him that sent me has everlasting life. The mission of our Lord Jesus, was to bring man to his original relationship with the father. Man was created to fellowship with God, and to be an access way for God to relate with His creation. It was God in Adam that enabled, him to name all the creatures of the earth. God dwelt in man and conferred all authority on man. Gen 1:26. The presence of God in man was what made him alive unto God. He was spiritually alive. The day he disobeyed God, and ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he lost the presence of God, and so man died spiritually. Rom 5:12. The Lord came down to this earth to restore that relationship between God and men.
What was the message of the Son about the Father to men? John 3:16.”For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life”. Men are to believe in the love of the Father. The Lord reveals the unquenchable love of the Father in the story of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32) He demonstrates the anger of God against satanic oppression that assaults men with diseases. This was seen, as the Lord went about healing the sick (Acts 10:38). He teaches about God’s love for the sinner and simultaneously His fury against sin. The Lord Jesus unveils the loving heart of God, for all men, and His anger against sin.
In the Light of these revelations about the heart of the Father towards men, each one must repent from all sinful ways and accept the love of the Father. This is the only way to find true meaning in life.
Until a man comes to the point of total surrender to the authority of God, he or she is a miserable wonderer in this world.
He keeps chasing for satisfaction and indulges the flesh in all kinds of pleasure. At the end of the day, he finds himself miserable and empty. This is not what the Lord Jesus intends for you. John 10:10 KJV” The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Stop yielding to the thief of your soul and surrender to Jesus.
THOUGHT: LIFE IS ONLY MEANINGFUL, WHEN GIVEN TO GOD
John 3:17 KJV” For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
Luke 15:20 KJV “And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.”
