Life in His name…

"But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name."   John 20:31

 

If we are not careful, we will begin to believe that life is education.  We spend eighteen years going to elementary and high school to learn.  Many of us spend another four or maybe more years going to college to learn.  If we are not careful, we will begin to believe that life is money.  We work countless hours on the job so that we can get paid.  We work harder and harder and longer and longer so we can get that big raise.  If we are not careful, we will begin to believe that life is family.  We have one child or two or four (speaking from experience), and we get wrapped up in our dreams for our children.  Or even worse, we get wrapped up in our children's dreams for themselves.  Nowhere in God's Word does it say that life is education.  Nowhere in God's Word does it say that life is money.  Nowhere in God's Word does it say that life is family.  However, Jesus does say in John 14:6 that He is "the life."  John says in 20:31, "But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name."  If you are searching for life, you will not find it anywhere else other that Jesus.  Jesus is life!  Jesus is not just life; He is FULL life!  In John 10:10, Jesus said, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."  Education is good, money is good, and family is really good.  But those things are not life.  They will not bring you full life.  Only Jesus can bring life.  Only Jesus can bring full life.  Stop believing the lies that Satan is giving away.  He only wants to steal and kill and destroy you.  Jesus wants you to have life and have it to the full.  Believe in Him and have life!

I would love to hear your comments...
