You Can Know That You Have Eternal Life
 

The Apostle John, in his first Epistle, explains that he is writing to "you who believe in the Name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life."(1 John 5:13) If that sounds redundant to you, that's understandable. We have been taught that if you believe on the name of Jesus, then you do have eternal life. What John is saying is that it is possible to have eternal life, but not have assurance of salvation. It is also possible to believe in the wrong Christ.

 

Satan has always attempted to sow seeds of doubt about God. He misquoted God when deceiving Adam and Eve. He uses lies and half-truths to plant doubts in our minds. At the time John was writing there were false teachers trying to convince Christians that what they had believed was wrong, and they were not really saved. So, John writes to settle exactly who Jesus is, and what it means to know him as Savior.

 

John begins by reviewing the true nature and identity of Jesus Christ. John relates the apostles' testimony of Christ, saying that they heard, saw, studied, and touched the man Jesus. He was a real human being. John then refers to Jesus by the same title that he used in his Gospel, the Word of Life. (John 1:1) Jesus is life, and he is eternal. Jesus possesses a real human body, and is also the Word, the one who, in the beginning, created all things.

 

Why the emphasis on these details about who Christ is? The answer is that to receive eternal life, you must believe what the Bible says about who Christ actually is, not what you, or someone else imagines him to be. Satan has done a masterful job of deceiving people into believing that they are saved, but they have trusted in another Christ. Only faith in the true historical Jesus brings eternal life.

 

In 1 John 5:11-12, he sums up the message of salvation in Christ; "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life." The true Christ, Jesus the Son of God, is ready to save you, if you humbly seek him. You can know, without any doubt, that you have eternal life.                               Pastor Daniel Rhodes
