Enter Into Eternal Life

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16 As we conclude our series on eternal living, we have one final aspect to celebrate: Eternal living is forever, it’s an eternal life. Entering into eternal life doesn’t require any effort. It’s a gift that was given to you the moment you said yes to Jesus. If you haven’t made this decision, today is a great day to become a Christian. You can choose to become a believer in the good news and in Christ.

He prepares us by training and equipping us so that we are never unprepared for life’s fights and problems. In Matthew 10, for example, Jesus commissions his disciples to carry on the work of His Kingdom in the same way that He has modeled it to them. He gives them the power to banish demons and heal the ill, but He also warns them. He warns them that they will be like sheep among wolves when they venture out. I don’t know about you, but that wouldn’t make me feel very safe, and it certainly wouldn’t get me enthused about the travel. The caution, on the other hand, comes with a
