Those who believe in the Son have eternal life, but those who do not obey the Son will never have life. Joh 3:36
When does salvation come?
When we look to Christ. When we embrace him as Saviour.
Astonishingly simple, isn't it? Claim the great promise of Joh 3:16 : "God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life."
God, the Lover. God, the Giver. God, the Saviour.
And man, the believer. And for those who believe, he has promised a new birth.
But despite the simplicity, there are still those who don't believe. They don't trust the promise…
If only they would try. If only they would test it. But God is as polite as he is passionate. He never forces his way in. The choice is theirs.
