Sons Have Eternal Life 2


Download Today's Audio☞

1 John 5:12 (NET) The one who has the Son has this eternal life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have this eternal life.

It wasn't that Phillip too was not a believer, in fact, he and Jide became friends because they both were leaders in the same campus fellowship when they were in the university, but unlike Phillip, Jide remained in the Lord, and allowed his life to be ruled by the will and pleasure of the Lord.

Phillip, on the other hand, was a believer but he was not completely sold out to the Lord. He still wanted the best of both worlds. He loved the Lord but he also loved the world. Unknown to him though, the love of the Father was not truly in him because of his love for the world and the things therein(see 1 John 2:15). He also was not accountable to any church assembly but was a floating Christian who had changed church assembly eight times in six years.

From today's Bible verse, we see that it is he that has the Son that has eternal life. What does it mean to have the Son? It means to abide in the Lord and let His word and Spirit dwell in us richly. A believer who is not spirit-filled cannot appropriate the power and benefits of his eternal life that is in Christ.

Abiding in Christ begins with a decision we make to remain in the Lord and not go back to the world. A believer who abides in the Lord would abide in the church because the church is the body of Christ. The church is a community of believers that have leadership that meets the qualifications outlined in 1 Timothy 3. In the church, there should be submission and accountability. You are to be submitted and accountable to the leadership of your local church assembly.

Go into today remembering that those who walk in the power of eternal life are those who abide in Christ. Those who abide in Christ would abide in His church and allow the word of God to become the standard upon which they build their lives.

Prayer: Lord, help me abide in you and be fruitful.
