“For God so loved the world,that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
God so loved the world. The world. Everyone who lives now. Everyone who has ever lived. Everyone who will ever live. Why? Because God is love. Love not hate.
Only those who believe in His only begotten Son Jesus will have eternal life.
God didn’t hold out the carrot of everlasting life out and make us jump through hoops to get it. He only put one condition on it. We must believe in Jesus.
Plain and simple. It is not God that makes everlasting life complicated. It is us and our lack of understanding.
People think that if we follow the Ten Commandments, that is how we earn a ticket to everlasting life, but God knew we, as humans, couldn’t follow all the Commandments perfectly. That is why He sent His Son to fulfill the Commandments for us.
It is through Jesus and His shed blood at the Cross that we have everlasting life. All we have to do is believe in Jesus and what He did for us.
