1 John 1:2

and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us—
1 John 1:2 NASB

🌹In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:1 NASB

God of revelation who unveils the mystery of Christ and His manifestation. I praise You for the testimony of John who saw and testified of the manifestation of Christ. His testimony is true; and he is still telling the truth, through Your word, so that all who hear may also believe. Believe the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to Your saints, to whom You willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in me, the hope of glory. Hallelujah to You, my Deliverer and hope!
Holy God, may I always carry about in my body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in my body. For I know we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
Father, I pray, asking to be a letter of Christ to those around me, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. May I be a walking evidence of Christ living in me, the Light of life to all who are around me.
God, I thank You for eternal life and the promise that no one will snatch me out of Your hand. In humble adoration as Your servant, amen in Jesus name.
John 19:35/Colossians 1:26‭-‬27/2 Corinthians 4:10‭-‬11/2 Corinthians 3:2‭-‬3/John 1:4/John 10:28 NASB

🌹This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
John 17:3 NASB

True God and Eternal Life

And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
1 John 5:20 NASB

God, our Father, we love Your Son because He had come from You. He did not come on His own initiative but in obedience to Your sending Him. Jesus, who was manifested, seen, and testified of has been proclaimed to us for eternal life. He was with You Father and manifested to us. In sending Your Son, He opened our minds to understand the Scriptures through the power of Your Holy Spirit. Through Your Holy Scriptures we may know You, the only true God and Jesus Christ through whom we have eternal life.  Although we have never seen You, our Father at any time, Jesus, who is at Your bosom, has explained You.
Father, we know whoever denies Your Son does not have You; the one who confesses the Son also has You, our Father.
Thank You Father for sending Your Son in whose name we pray. Amen.
(John 8:42 NASB, 1 John 1:2, NASB, Luke 24:45-49 NASB, John 17:3 NASB, John 1:18 NASB, 1 John 2:23 NASB)

🌹And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

Already Dead

By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.
1 John 4:9 NASB

For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:17‭-‬18 NASB

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.
John 5:24 NASB

🌹I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
Galatians 2:20 NASB

Pleasing God

For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
Romans 8:6‭-‬8 NASB

For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
Galatians 6:8 NASB

for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
Romans 8:13 NASB

🌹Where is your mindset? What are you reaping? It’s a life or death choice whether to please God.

White for Harvest

Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.
John 17:17‭-‬19 NASB

Christian, you have been cleansed by the Word, sanctified. Sanctified for a purpose. As Christ was sent into the world by the Father, you have been sent into the world by Jesus.

Purpose: Jesus *said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.

Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest. Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. For in this case the saying is true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.”
John 4:34‭-‬38 NASB

🌹This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
John 17:3 NASB

Eternal Life for Everyone

“Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, you accursed people, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 
These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Matthew 25:41‭, ‬46 NASB

Evil will bring death to the wicked, And those who hate the righteous will suffer for their guilt. 
The Lord redeems the souls of His servants, And none of those who take refuge in Him will suffer for their guilt.
Psalms 34:21‭-‬22 NASB

🌹 Eternal life is something all will experience. Where and how you experience it is another story. Where will you spend eternity?

Love Life

And a lawyer stood up and put Him (Jesus) to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” And He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?”  And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” And He said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this and you will live.”
Luke 10:25‭-‬28 NASB

🌹 How is your love life?

What is Your Sacrifice?

A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which amount to a cent. Calling His disciples to Him, He said to them, “Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the contributors to the treasury; for they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all she had to live on.” Mark 12:42‭-‬44 NASB/Luke 21:3-4 NASB

This woman parted with all she had. Her livelihood was placed on the altar. She gave all she had for the glory of God.

How could she do that? She trusted in God to be her Jehovah-jireh – the Lord will provide.

🌹 What are you willing to lay on the altar for the glory of God? This woman gave her all.

And He said to them, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who will not receive many times as much at this time and in the age to come, eternal life.” Luke 18:29‭-‬30 NASB

Did It or Not To Me

The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’
Matthew 25:40 NASB

Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ Matthew 25:45 NASB

These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Matthew 25:46 NASB

God is all about people. He created them. He pursues a relationship with them. He pours out blessings on those who are His.

Since God is all about people, should we not also be?

During this time of Covid, many people are isolated in their homes with little to no human contact. Have we checked on our brothers and sisters who are not gathering with us for church? Do we take the time to “do for one of these”?

🌹Who has God placed on your heart, in your mind to reach out to? “to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.”

Redeemed Ambassadors

And Jesus cried out and said, “He who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me. 

He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me. 

I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.

If anyone hears My sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.

He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day. 

For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.

I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me.”  

John 12:44‭-‬50 NASB

Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth;  knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.     

1 Peter 1:13‭, ‬17‭-‬19 NASB

🌹Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.  Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

2 Corinthians 5:18‭-‬20 NASB

🙏 Jesus, our perfect example, help us to rely on Your word, Your Holy Spirit, and our hope found in You to be Your ambassadors of reconciliation to the lost of the world.
