And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life [eternal life] is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son does not have life. (1 John 5:11, 12, NIV 1984).
My Musings – It could not be plainer than this. If you have the Son, you have life. If you do not have the Son, you do not have life. Not just any life, eternal life. Everyone starts out without the Son. Not everyone will end up having the Son. Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live [have eternal life], even though he dies.” (John 11:25, NIV 1984).
My Advice – Regrettably, not everyone will believe. It doesn’t have to be you. Read my “The Born Again Experience” musings.
