On The Way


"And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son does not have life" (1 Jn.5:11-12).

God, through His Son Jesus, has promised us eternal life with Him. It is a common view that this is what we inherit for living a life of obedience to the Lord. But what do we have on the way? The life which Jesus offers us is described as eternal life....But as this term is used by Jesus and the apostles, it is not only a description of a future hope. "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full" (Jn.10:10). The term eternal life is also a present possession. It is the abundant "on the way" life. It is the wonderful quality of life that we possess now in knowing God and His Son. It comes from the fellowship we share with God and Jesus. "We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make our joy complete" (1 Jn.1:3). Jesus explained to Nicodemus that no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again. More specifically; "I tell you the truth, no on can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of the water and the Spirit" (Jn.3:5). When we are raised with Christ here on earth we truly come alive! This is such a thrilling way to look at our lives here on earth. It is this wonderful on the way life that comes with so many perks that make our lives complete. More tomorrow....

Have a great day.... Go about doing good..... Love mark Phil.4:11
