Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them. John 3:36
The majority of people upon the earth feel that they are living life. Many also believe that they are living a good life. Others believe they are not living a very good life, due to all of the struggles and their financial position.
It is most common for people to focus upon what they have as to whether they are living a good life or not. This is a temporary look at things that do not last.
Jesus stated the way to have eternal life, believe on God’s Son…Himself. Anyone who rejects Jesus will only have God’s wrath upon him with death.
As the world is looking for life in the temporary things of this earth, they are missing out on what is true living. Most commonly the things people are looking for life in only bring about death. They give a temporary, short time pleasure, only to bring about death in the end.
Others will look towards good things, such as helping others out for life. Regardless of how good something is on this earth, it is only temporary and will not bring about true life.
True life can only be found in Jesus, God’s Son.
Anything short of believing in and following Jesus brings only death. Many people go to church and can quote the bible, but do not believe in Jesus as their Savior. They are living according to the works or deeds, not faith in Jesus.
In truth they are rejecting Jesus, the only one who can truly save them and give them true life. God is giving mankind mercy in providing life through Jesus. People have to choose to follow or reject Him for life or death.
You are going through life right now making daily choices. Your life may be one that is going well or it may be a difficult struggle.
The real question is which life are you really searching for. It is easy to find the temporary life of this world, but it only ends in death. Put your complete trust in Jesus as your Savior, so that you will know what true life is, regardless of whether you live or die on this earth.
Choosing to trust in Jesus is the greatest decision you will have to make, because it brings eternal life, not death.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will believe in and follow Jesus with all of your life; that you will know the true life God provides you; and that God will strengthen you to turn away from the death the world offers.
