Jesus Is God's Son
"But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name." John 20:31
Scripture Focus: Ecclesiastes 12:12-14, John 21
This is the last place in his Gospel where John mentions "life." He tells his readers that his explicit purpose for writing was that they would believe. But notice how John does not simply say blind faith saves. He does not say that being saved comes from believing Jesus was a good man, a moral teacher, or a worker of miracles. Life, John says, can be ours only by believing Jesus to be the Christ - the promised coming Savior.
Life comes by believing Jesus is the Christ and that He is God's Son (Romans 10:9-10). Many philosophies claim to have "the meaning of life." Many ideologies and religious cults deceive with empty promises of life. None of them has the truth that leads to eternal life.
Life - true life, changed life, eternal life - is ours only through Jesus. "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:11). Will you commit your heart to Him and experience true "life in His name"? May your life in Jesus bring glory to God.
Insight: Jesus is ever-ready to impart life to the weary, broken, and humble. turn from sin and ask Him for life in His name today.
