Eternal Life

April 9, 2008 Leave a comment

How encouraging that John’s stated purpose is to comfort his readers.

If I didn’t know my eternal destiny, I’d be distracted constantly by questions of existence, meaning, and doubt.

Because of the promises in the Bible and the historical evidence which supports its claims, I can go through life confident in my eternal destiny.

This is different than saying I have self-confidence. In fact, it is nearly the opposite. That’s the key. It’s not dependent upon my performance day-by-day. And that brings me great comfort.

The Christian life is simultaneously freeing because it sets clear parameters and freeing because the parameters no longer convict me.

“He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life” (NIV).

Thank you, Lord, for allowing Jesus into my life.
