YOU ARE NOT PERISHABLE
John 3 vs
>>16.¶For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.-[KJV]<<||
THE SEPARATION or spiritual death of mankind could only be dealt with by the greatest act of God’s unfeigned love. It is proven in scriptures that you can give without loving, but you can’t truly love without giving (1 Corinthians 13:1-3). God validates this in our opening scripture. Therefore, God so loved us while we were yet sinners (Romans 5:6-8). And He perfected this love by giving us His only begotten Son.
Thus, the prove of His love was in His giving to man in order to save the world from sins (1 John 2:1-2). The main idea behind God’s love was to give everlasting life to as many who will believe in His Son. This is one way to know true love. It’s always for your betterment (not worse). Yes, you can testify that whoever comes to Jesus becomes much better and never worse. Moreover, in this eternal life is guaranteed a life not perishable. Jesus said, “whoever believes in Him SHOULD NOT PERISH”. This is not a promise, but a statement of fact and for that matter, a divine reality.
To “perish” means to be destroyed, abolished, ruined or lost”. Metaphorically it means “to devote or give one over to eternal misery in hell”. But anyone who believes in the Son has this eternal assurance and good news that he should not perish; For Christ has become your eternal Salvation. Cherished one, believing in Jesus empowers you to live and conduct your life accordingly. Truly, believing in Jesus Christ is not a feeling, but a personal and glorious experience and encounter with the very life of God which becomes resident in you. If you have truly believed in Christ, then you are not perishable ! Therefore abide, remain and stay in Him with your all in all. Walk in this assurance of your salvation. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always. Amen!
Thank You glorious Father for given me Your begotten Son Jesus to give me everlasting life. I am not ashamed to declare I believe in Jesus. I have eternal life, the very life of God in me. So I am not perishable ! Thank You Lord ! Glory!
Enjoy A Glorious Saturday !
