We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one dos not touch him. – 1 John 18:18
Having a true faith in the Lord Jesus Christ gives us life; everlasting life with the Son of the Father. We are not of the world, yet we live in this world. Having my belief in God has given me a new life; I am strengthened by him who is the strength of life and the breath of life, the creator of our lives in the first place.
How powerful a statement knowing my true home is in heaven with Christ Jesus. For any who believe we can hope for the eternal forgiveness, life and regeneration of life to be within us while the rest of the world dies.
I would rather have a true faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, knowing I may have an eternity with my Savior and Lord, rather than spend eternity in eternal hell and damnation for not believing in Christ. I want others to know that I may not have the earthly things that they seek and that their materialistic lives are based upon, but these are minuscule in contrast to the life of eternal joy that Christ gives us. Believing truly in the Lord Jesus Christ brings a heartfelt joy that others won’t ever know or experience.
Being unforgiven for being sinners who do not believe in Jesus as being the only Savior there is creates an eternal damnation for those who do not seek and know Jesus. How easy it is to spend time reading the bible, and earning the joy of the Lord in one’s heart, to know the One True God as a friend, Savior and protector, that cannot come close in true value with all the money in the world or all the creature comforts on earth. Through His strength I am free.
And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. – 1 John 5:11
How amazing to have a life made of joy – and you know it’s from Christ Jesus.
