“He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.” 1 John 5:12 NASB

It is plain and simple. The one whose faith and trust is in Jesus as Savior and Lord has life, and the one who does not trust in Jesus, the Son of God, does not have eternal life. Many people say there are multiple ways to get to heaven. Many people trust in good works, or good deeds, or fame and fortune, or even religion to get them eternal life. Some people even say that all the world’s religions will get you to heaven. However, the Bible is quite clear that Jesus is the only way to heaven and eternal life. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but through me.” John 14:6

Lord Jesus, I believe You are the only way to the Father, to heaven and to eternal life. Help me to share this simple truth with others.
