John 5:19-30
19 Jesus replied, “I assure you, the Son can do nothing by himself. He does only what he sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and tells him everything he is doing, and the Son will do far greater things than healing this man. You will be astonished at what he does. 21 He will even raise from the dead anyone he wants to, just as the Father does. 22 And the Father leaves all judgment to his Son, 23 so that everyone will honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. But if you refuse to honor the Son, then you are certainly not honoring the Father who sent him. 24 ‘I assure you, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.’ 25 ‘And I assure you that the time is coming, in fact it is here, when the dead will hear my voice, the voice of the Son of God. And those who listen will live. 26 The Father has life in himself, and he has granted his Son to have life in himself. 27 And he has given him authority to judge all mankind because he is the Son of Man. 28 Don’t be so surprised! Indeed, the time is coming when all the dead in their graves will hear the voice of God’s Son, 29 and they will rise again. Those who have done good will rise to eternal life, and those who have continued in evil will rise to judgment. 30 But I do nothing without consulting the Father. I judge as I am told. And my judgment is absolutely just, because it is according to the will of God who sent me; it is not merely my own.’ Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.

Whoever has the Son, has life.  Outside of Him, there is no life at all. To find the way to God, to understand the truth of God’s Word and to receive the gift of life, begins with repentance and faith. Believing that Jesus Christ is God and came to earth as a man is the beginning of life. To repent means to turn from the former to the new. If you recognize the sin in your life and turn away from it and ask Jesus to forgive your sin, then you will spend eternity with Him. Because of the blood of Jesus Christ was shed for your sin and because you believe, you can be free from your sin.  Only through the Son, can we have fellowship with the Father. Only through the power of God’s Spirit can we understand the truth. As we abide with Christ, His Spirit lives in us and we can have fellowship with the Father. We believe and hear the voice of God calling us to the life of Christ Jesus. We then become a child of the Most Holy God and we receive the peace that only He can give. Listen to the message Christ gave us and then believe, receive and live it.

Have a God Day!
