Verse of the Day

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. —1 John 5:13

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Yes, we can KNOW we have eternal life! Don’t settle for less!! Confidence is so crucial that God sent his Son to die and be raised so we could know that eternal life with Jesus is our destination, not just our journey. While that eternal life begins and is experienced now (John 5:24), what we experience here is only a hint, a foretaste, of what lies ahead in our glorious and eternal future with the Lord Jesus.


My Prayer…

Thank you, heavenly Father, for your plan of salvation and the cost you paid to make it happen. Thank you for giving me confidence now in my eternal future with you as your child. Thank you for heaven, hope, and my home with you forever. To you belong all the glory and praise, and I pray in your name, Lord Jesus. Amen.

  1. 1 John 5:13
    I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

    I would like to share this passage in the first chapter of John that ties in so well with our verse for today:
    John 1:12-13
    Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God – children not born of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

    Such a clear gospel message in our verses today! Jesus Christ offers Himself to all who believe in His name, and those who do so, He has given the right or authority to become His own blood-bought children. We are not saved by good works, church attendance, doing our best, or giving money to the church, while these are godly and obedient things to do, they do not have the power to bring about the salvation of our soul. That is done by faith in Christ and His blood shed for us on the cross at Calvary. That makes atonement to God for our sins.
    It is the only payment He will accept. And we are given eternal life in heaven with Him!

    Romans 8:17 tells us that we are joint-heirs with Christ before God. What a glorious position we are in before our holy and righteous God because of the work of Christ!

    To become a child in a physical sense one must be born. So it is with becoming a child of God, there must be a second birth, one must be “born again”. Verse 13 tells us first how this does not happen, it does not happen by natural descent or blood; in other words just because you have Christian parents, this does not mean you are automatically saved. Salvation is not passed down through the blood lines.
    Next it tells us that it is not by human decision or will of the flesh; a person does not have the power in our own flesh to become born again in Christ, although one must be willing to place their faith in Christ, it is the work of the Holy Spirit that does the saving.
    Lastly we are told it is not of the husband’s will or the will of man; no other person can save us, not a pastor, teacher, earthy parents…etc. No matter how much they may want us to be saved, they have no power to save our souls.

    The answer to our salvation is in the last three words of our passage…. “but of God”! Our new birth does not rest with anyone or anything other than God Himself. Are you resting in Him today? If not please do so before it is forever too late. He loves you and wants you to be with Him for eternity but the choice is yours.
    Acts 16:31… “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved!”

    Thank You Jesus for loving me and coming to this earth to pay my sin debt before God with Your precious blood. I love You so my Redeemer and give You all praise this day my King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Amen!
