Lent 2017 – Day Twenty
John 3:36 confirms God’s promise of eternal life. To access and enjoy this promise of God, one must believe in the son of God – Jesus Christ. The verse does not specify who must believe in Jesus Christ but simply says that anyone who believes in Jesus Christ shall have eternal life. Therefore, the background of a person cannot be a hindrance to receiving eternal life so long as that person’s belief is placed in Jesus Christ. There is no discrimination among those who place their belief in Jesus Christ. Murderers, rapists, armed robbers, and all kinds of people will enjoy this promise of eternal life when they believe in Jesus Christ. On the other hand, if your belief is not in Jesus Christ then you will not receive eternal life. This is the gospel and I encourage you to share it with many people as you can.
