Beloved of God, I have good news coming right out of the Message paraphrase in John 11:25-26 .“You don’t have to wait for the End. I am, right now, Resurrection and Life. The one who believes in me, even though he or she dies, will live. And everyone who lives believing in me does not ultimately die at all. Do you believe this?” Not sure about you but this is a rhetorical question for me! Of course, I believe that in Christ we all have access to eternal life. The kicker for me is not so much my life here on this planet rather, it’s the rest of my eternal existence spent with God the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit! This scripture is simple saying that we don’t have to wait to celebrate, we can celebrate destination heaven right now because of our faith in Christ!
If you have not accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior and you’ve been hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit calling your name and tugging at your heart; stop what your doing and pray with me today:
“God, I know that I have sinned against You and am deserving of punishment. But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. I place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness! In Jesus’ name, amen!”
