John 5:24 NLT
I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.
Refelction . . .
This verse is a confirmation of many other verses and passages in Scripture. It confirms the simple truth that those who believe in Jesus Christ have eternal life and that their sins will never be held against them. That is such a wonderful truth to grasp and hold on to. Our enemy, the Devil trys to twist that truth to make us believe that we are unworthy of God’s forgiveness, but the truth is that for those of us who believe, we “have already passed from death into life!”
There are many truths in the Bible and many wonderful verses. This verse is perhaps one of the best summaries of God’s work of grace in us. Read the verse many times, meditate on it and allow it to capture our minds and our hearts anew!
Our role is to . . .
Listen, believe and keep on believing that our sins are forgiven, and that we have hope for all eternity!
