“I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life.
This verse really jumped out at me. Read it slowly one more time….
” I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life”
Let me first say that NONE OF US DESERVE HEAVEN, but because of Jesus, it is our promised home.
Do you believe in the name of the Son of God? That means do you believe in Jesus? Do you believe He is the Son of God? Do you believe He died for your sins? You probably do because you are here on this blog reading this. :) Well, YOU ARE PROMISED ETERNAL LIFE!! Don’t let the devil lie to you and tell you that you are not going to heaven. God’s precious word says you are!! Yes, we all sin and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) but He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins if we confess them to Him and repent. (1 John 1:9)
The bottom line in pure simplicity…. if You believe in Jesus, you have eternal life. As you grow in him daily, you will mature and want to do more than just believe. Spend time with Him, seek His will for your life, pray and read his precious Word. You will grow! :)
Take a moment and look at the picture above. Heaven is a real place. One day you and I will be there. We will all leave our earthly bodies one day. You hang on and don’t let the devil lie to you and tell you that you don’t deserve heaven. Tell him this “Yes, I am a sinner and I don’t deserve heaven! But I’m forgiven by Jesus who defeated you at the cross on Calvary!!! He is my Savior and I am His child. YOU ARE A LIAR!” Make sure you repent and turn from your sin and stay close to the Lord because your home is waiting for you in heaven!
John 14: 1-3 (NIV)
Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. ”
Be encouraged, heaven is your home and the devil is a LIAR!!!!
