Bible Verse

Pin it!
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. - I John 5:13 NLT

Meditation

This verse is SO powerful and liberating to so many who have believed the message of Jesus, but thought somehow that they could never know for certain whether or not they were headed for heaven or hell. 

These verses were written to believers who didn’t know for sure whether they would go to heaven or hell- to tell them- so that they could KNOW- they would go to heaven- and they indeed had eternal life.

Could they lose their ticket to heaven if they stopped caring about God and living according to His word? Yes. 

Jesus said, unless you pick up your cross and follow me, you cannot be my disciple. As in baptism, we must die to every godless impulse and live our lives in Christ’s spirit.

No one should think he is saved because he believed in Jesus, even if he walks around healing the sick and prophesying in Jesus' name, if he is not dead to sin and alive to God.

How can he know he is saved? His lifestyle will demonstrate God’s compassion for others.

If you have found yourself in the scary position of living a hard-hearted lifestyle, while professing to be a Christian, there is but one message for you. 

Repent and you will be saved.

The moment you confess one sin to God, he wipes away ALL your unrighteousness.

Your whole life instantly becomes as though you never, never sinned. But be careful now to live with a humble and compassionate heart. Ask God to help you love like He does, and follow Christ.

Prayer

Heavenly Father,

Forgive me for every hard-hearted way, and fill me with Your compassion for others. Thank You for Jesus who gave his life so that I could be forgiven. Help me to live in complete surrender to the Holy Spirit and die to every selfish and evil way. Open my understanding and fill me with wisdom so that I will understand Your Word and live in You.

 In Jesus' name I ask, Amen.
