1 John 5:11
The Upward Look

“And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.” 1 John 5:11 HCSB
God’s witness, or testimony, is that He gives eternal life through His Son, Jesus. “Eternal life” could be defined as an endless, forever life that does not change or decay and cannot be destroyed by death. Only God can give this everlasting life. Human endeavor cannot earn eternal life, but it is an unmerited, free gift of God’s grace. This life is only found in His Son. Eternal life is obtained only through faith in Jesus Christ, the only Son of God.
Lord Jesus, it is only through You that I have eternal life. Help me to share with others the wonderful news that they can have the gift of everlasting life through faith in You.
