Hi, God’s word for me today is in John 20:30-31 which says:
“30 Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. 31 But these are written that you may believe[a] that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”
Jesus had appeared to His disciples but Thomas had not been there and he didn’t believe the disciples when they told Him about Jesus. Thomas said that when he had touched the place where the nails went into Jesus hands and when he had put his hand in Jesus’ side then he (Thomas) would believe. Again the disciples were in a room that was locked and Thomas was with them. Then Jesus walked into the room even though it was locked and He told Thomas to put his hands into Jesus’ side and to touch Jesus’ hands. Then Thomas believed.
In verses 31 Johns says that by believing we can have life in Jesus’ name. How? Well we were sinners in need of a savior and Jesus was and is our savior! Jesus came down from heaven and He took our sins on Him, then He died for our sins on the cross! Jesus died for us so that we could live!
If you are an unbeliever than why don’t you receive life by trusting in Jesus as your savior? John says that by believing we can have life in Jesus’ name. If you are an unbeliever than why don’t you believe in Jesus and receive life? Why don’t you receive eternal life in heaven by trusting in Jesus as your savior. Jesus died for our sins, why don’t you believe in Him?
As Christians we should spread the Gospel that Jesus died for us on the cross so that we could live. We should give the Gospel to unbeliever so that they can believe and have life in Jesus’ name. We should give the Gospel to unbelievers just like John did. We should share the Gospel with unbelievers so that they can have eternal life by accepting Jesus as their savior.
Thank You Jesus for dying for our sins on the cross. Thank You Jesus for loving us enough to die for our sins and give us eternal life. Thank You Jesus for being our atoning sacrifice by dying on a cross so that we could live. Thank You Jesus for atoning for our sins so that we can believe in You and have eternal life.
Are you trusting in Jesus?
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
