I Believe in Life Everlasting

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  (John 3:16, NIV 1984). 

“The hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good [whoever believes in Him], unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil [whoever does not believe], unto the resurrection of damnation.” (John 5:28–29, KJV). 

My Musings – I believe in life everlasting (The Apostles’ Creed),  the life of the world to come (The Nicene Creed).  The key word is believe.  Believe in Him, not merely believe about Him.  “Even the demons believe that—and shudder.”  (James 2:19, NIV 1984). There is a world of difference.  The world to come difference.  If you believe in Him you have eternal life — and nothing to shudder about.  If you merely believe about Him (or do not believe even that) you will perish.  Eternal life or eternal damnation, the only two possible outcomes.

My Advice – There is no need to shudder.  Come to Jesus today.
