I John 5:11-12
And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. (NKJV)
God has provided eternal life for all of mankind, and this eternal life is only found in His Son Jesus Christ. Each person who has repented of their sin and accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior has eternal life, and each person who has not repented and accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior does not have eternal life.
Seperation From God
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (NKJV)
But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear. (NKJV)
In the midst of mankind being separated from God due to their sin, God reveals His love toward us by sending His Son, Jesus Christ to pay the price of our sins on Calvary’s cross
Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (NKJV)
The choice is ours. We can repent of our sins and have Jesus Christ pay the price for our sins through His death, burial, and resurrection, or we can choose to pay the price for our sins our self.
And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. (NKJV)
And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. (NKJV)
There is only one way our name can be written in God’s Book of Life, and us receive God’s gift of eternal life.
Jesus said...., "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.(NKJV)
HOU TO RECEIVE GOD'S GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE
