Do you know that eternal life is a gift from God? The Bible teaches, “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life.” John 3:16
God’s gift of eternal life means your spirit person will live forever, but how about life on earth?
Does God care?
Jesus said, “I have come so they may have life. I want them to have it in the fullest possible way.” John 10:10b
God wants you to live an abundant life in the fullest possible way, and he tells you how.
“I am the vine. You are the branches. If you remain joined to me, and I to you, you will bear a lot of fruit. You can’t do anything without me.” John 15:5
You must always be joined to Jesus your vine! He’s the source of productive life on earth, and you must know him intimately.
“And what is eternal life? It is knowing you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” John 17:3
KNOWING GOD is the connection that keeps eternal life flowing through our veins, just like a branch that stays firmly connected to the vine will LIVE and bear much fruit!
