I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life. (1 John 5:13)
Scripture is not given to us only for equipping, but also for encouragement. God’s Word isn’t brought to us merely to teach us to follow commandments, but to help us find confidence in the status of our relationship with God!
If you’re in Christ, God doesn’t want you to think you have eternal life in Him – He wants you to KNOW it! He doesn’t want you to just hope for a better future, but to have the kind of confidence in Christ that produces a better and more joyful life right now.
Christian, if you’ve trusted Jesus for salvation and surrendered to Him as Lord, then no matter what you do or is done to you, you can have confidence in this truth.
Jesus is your guarantee of eternal life.
