29 Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

The Purpose of This Book

30 Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

Belief, Trust - Not in Fables and Fairy Tales - But in the REAL Birth, Life, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the Basis for a Know-So Salvation.

John 3:15–18 NLT
15 so that everyone who believes in him will have eternal life. 16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. 18 “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son.
John 6:47 NLT
47 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes has eternal life.
1 John 5:11–12 NLT
11 And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life.

Taking God at HIS WORD is the Heart and Soul of True Belief.

Verse 15 “so that everyone who believes in him will have eternal life”
Verse 16 “so that everyone who believes IN HIM will not perish but have eternal life
Verse 18 “There is NO JUDGMENT against anyone who believes IN HIM...”
Time to Give Up on Doubting and Step up to FAITH 101 - TAKE GOD AT HIS WORD!
Your Belief is not Honored Because of What You have done or Who You have become.
Your Belief is Honored Because GOD HAS DONE THE REAL WORK THROUGH HIS SON JESUS. HE HAS SET THE STANDARD FOR RECEIVING ETERNAL LIFE. HE HAS CALLED UPON YOU TO BELIEVE - TAKE HIM AT HIS WORD and HE IS THE GUARANTEE OF ETERNAL LIFE
1 John 2:26–27 NLT
26 I am writing these things to warn you about those who want to lead you astray. 27 But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true—it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.
John 16:13–14 NLT
13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. 14 He will bring me glory by telling you whatever he receives from me.
Romans 8:15–16 NLT
15 So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” 16 For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.

God Has Given Us The Holy Spirit to CONFIRM our Status: GOD’S CHILDREN

Romans 8:38–39 NLT
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The Bible Declares, GOD IS LOVE and Nothing Can Separate Us From His Love

Our Sin Can Separate us From His Blessings
Our Fear Can Separate us From His Guidance
Our Lack of Faith Can Separate Us from His Assurance
Our Lust Can Separate Us from His Satisfying Provision
Our Pride Can Separate Us from His Daily Will
BUT, For Those Who Believe, These are Temporary Because:
The Love of God is Eternal, The Love of God Sacrificed the Son in our Place, The Love of God Overcomes Sin, The Love of God Destroys Fear, The Love of God Reaches out to the Lost and asks only for Simple Trust in Return. Once Granted and Accepted it is Never Revoked and No other Person, Power, Problem or Pitfall Can Remove it From Your life.
