Reflection on 1 John 5:9-13

1 john

Scripture

Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son does not have life.

Observation

We believe human testimony, but how must more should we believe God’s testimony. God has testified concerning His Son, and all who believe in Christ know that this testimony is true. Those who don’t believe in the Son call God a liar.

God’s testimony is this: He has given us eternal life through His Son. Whoever has the Son has eternal life, but those who don’t know Jesus so not have eternal life.

Application

It is our relationship with Jesus that brings eternal life. Life is in the Son, and only if you are one with Him will you have eternal life.

Theology does not save.

Attending church does not save.

Bible knowledge does not save.

Good deeds do not save.

Being nice does not save.

There is only one Person, one Name, one Way to salvation- a right relationship with Christ,

Prayer

Thank you Lord for the gift of salvation in Christ. Amen.
