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