Believe in Jesus
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. – John 3:17-18
Many people may have gone to a church service this past Sunday, be close to someone who has gone, or even attended a resurrection Sunday service, commonly referred to as Easter, in the past. Today’s message is simple, Jesus came so that all people might have life.
This current existence on earth you are experiencing is not life unless you have Jesus. Jesus tells us that He came so that we might have life and have it more abundantly. He also tells us that He is the way, the truth and the life. If a person is living without Jesus they are simply existing. In order to have life requires a person to have Jesus.
Upon completion of existence on this earth, our individual decisions will determine our individual eternal state in Heaven or Hell. Jesus tells us plainly, he/she who believes in Him (Jesus) is not condemned; but he/she who does not believe is condemned already. The plea for today is for all who read this message to make a decision to REALLY choose Jesus and believe in Him.
To be condemned is to be judged through deceleration. It’s like being sentenced to prison. In order to avoid the prison of condemnation one must believe in Jesus. Sadly, there are many people currently existing in the earth, walking around, in prison. If a person never believes in Jesus and becomes free while here in the earth Hell will be their eternal state. Jesus came so we can make a decision to be free from condemnation in Him.
Believing in Jesus goes beyond acknowledging there is a God. The word believe in the Greek is a verb. Believing in Jesus requires us to take action and do. John the Baptist said, “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
Believe in Jesus and have life now and eternally. Accept Jesus and be released from the prison of condemnation.
