John 6:47 – Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
What a grand promise! This passage found in the midst of one of the most controversial teachings of Jesus is a great comfort to the saints. Notice that the Savior does not say that those who believe will have everlasting life, rather they have it already.
Beloved, the assurance of better things, of a life completely without sin and death, is the blessing of Jesus Christ and His Spirit within. Rest assured of this fact trusting in the Lord to fulfill His promises. If you doubt, if you waver, turn to God and ask forgiveness for He is just to forgive, and He will not deny you for He has already given His Son.
The abundant life is ours as we live by faith. I encourage you to take time today to thank God the Father and Jesus Christ His Son for the blessing of the knowledge of Him and His love. Praise God for His excellent mercies!
