PRAYER: Thank God today for freedom.
DEVOTION: “Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life.” – 1 John 5:12
Pretty simple. I don’t think John could be clearer here. As he wraps up this book, I think he just wanted to make sure that the facts are the facts.
The Son = Life.
There is no disputing this. On this there can be no doubt, no games, no second guessing.
So, I’ll do the same. Jesus is life. That’s the final statement here. We try to make other things give us life….money, fame, technology , real estate, possessions, ego….but that life is a temporary life. A life that will fade away. A life that is 100 years or so.
The life John speaks of here is not a fading life. It’s an eternal life. It’s life to the fullest and life filled with freedom. It’s life filled with hope and with healing. Life filled with love.
That’s the life I want. The life I long for. The life I know that only Jesus can give me.
Today. Choose the Son. Choose life.
