He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (1 John 5:10-13)
Today's Morsel: If someone were to ask you if you were saved, what would you tell them? Did you know that you can be saved and know it? John said, "He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself...He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." It just all comes down to whether or not you have Jesus in you. Is your relationship with Him intact? Is He number one in your life all the time? Paul told the church at Rome, "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his"(Romans 8:9). Do you have the Holy Ghost. I'm not talking about a good feeling. I'm talking about knowing you have it just like they received it in the book of Acts. Paul said that if not, then we are none of His. And that means that we do not have eternal life yet. It's available, yet without His Spirit, we do not have life eternal. John said, "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother" (1 John 3:9-10). Are you doing what is right? Do you love your brother? If not, you're not of God. Jesus is a God of righteousness and love. If we will compare our life to the Word of God, we can know if we have eternal life or not.
Sing: I am determined to hold out to the end, Jesus is with me on him I can depend. For I know I have salvation, for I feel Him in my soul, I am determine to hold out to the end.
Thought for Today: Eternal life is free, all you have to do is what the word of God tells you.
