Gratitude Day #22 I am thankful for the gift of Eternal Life.

I am eternally mindful of the fact that the gift of eternal life was not mine to demand. I am also aware of the price that was paid for that gift. In spite of who I am YHWH still chose to offer that gift to me.

Matthew 25:46: “And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” John spoke of what it takes to receive this gift in  John 3:18: “Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is already condemned because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. He iterates the same sentiment in John 4:36:”Already the reaper draws his wages and gathers a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may rejoice together. John continued the highlight the “Godness” of Jesus and the importance of belief in the following Scriptures

  1. John 6:47 “Truly, truly, I tell you, he who believes has eternal life.
  2. John 6:50 “This is the bread that comes down from heaven so that anyone may eat of it and not die.
  3. John 6:51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And this bread, which I will give for the life of the world, is My flesh.”
  4. John 6:58 This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlike your fathers, who ate the manna and died, the one who eats this bread will live forever.”
  5. John 12:44 Then Jesus cried out, [ Jesus clarified the distinction of the oneness of the Godhead. One cannot believe in the Father and ignore the son. It is only through the Son that we receive eternal life.]  ‘Whoever believes in Me does not believe in Me alone, but in the One who sent Me.” And again,
  6. John 20:31 But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.”  Finally, the difference between a person who has received the gift of eternal life and an individual who has not receive this precious gift. 1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. The one who does not love remains in death.”
