Jesus Christ: The Only Source of Eternal Life: Gospel Today Devotional - 1st October, 2021

In the book of John, chapter three and in verse sixteen, it was recorded that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life (eternal life). In the same gospel according to John, chapter one and in verse twelve, it was recorded that as many as believed him, he gave the power to become the sons of God (possessing this life in them).

Jesus Christ: The Only Source of Eternal Life: Gospel Today Devotional - 1st October, 2021

It was recorded in the same gospel according to John that Jesus in talking about his sheep, said that he has given them eternal life(John 10:28). This however is appropriated when one comes to him and confesses him as Lord and Saviour. Whosever believes in him will have eternal life the scripture says.

The question many ask is this, why do we have to believe in Jesus? Does that mean that Jesus is the only source of eternal life? Is there truly eternal life in Jesus? The answer to all these is simple; and that answer is yes. Jesus is the only source of eternal life, and in him we have eternal life alone. Let's see the text of scripture below,

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. (1 John 5:11).

"And this is the record", wait a minute; what record? The answer is seen in the next statement; " That God has given us eternal life". That is true, isn't it? God indeed has given us eternal life(John 3:16). The question therefore is how did he give us this life? Through whom did the life come? And how can those who do not have the life yet possess this life?

The scripture above gives answers to the questions, that the eternal life God has given us is in his Son. The scripture says, "And this life is in his Son", what life? Eternal life. As many who have believed the Son, and have confessed him as Lord, and Saviour have this life in them. This is the life we have in Christ as believers because we have believed him.

God has given eternal life, but it can only be accessed through his Son. Are you reading through this today, and would like to have this life in you? You too can; for whosoever shall believe in him will have this life(eternal life). Why don't you make up your mind today? The Lord grants us all the grace to live in the reality of this truth.

Thought for the day: 

Jesus Christ is the only source of eternal life.
