Do You Have the Son?

You may have wealth, a comfortable lifestyle, and all you would ever need of this world’s goods, but do you have the Son?

You may have good friends and good times, but do you have the Son?

You may have religious ritual, but do you have the Son?

You may have a clear conscience, but do you have the Son?

You may have respectability, but do you have the Son?

Your good deeds may outweigh your bad deeds, but do you have the Son?

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. I John 5:11-12.

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. John 3:36.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. John 3:16-19

  1. Some people just don’t comprehend the difference and it frustrates me no end that I can’t — don’t have have the words — to explain to them the peace, security and joy that come from looking wholly to Jesus for salvation. I have loved ones I so dearly wish I could gift with just a small bit of my faith, so they can see for themselves, but the only one who can give the gift of life eternal is Jesus and each of us has to ask him for it ourselves.

  2. Good thoughts… “Do you have the Son” — a relationship rather than a series of teachings.

    I enjoyed your Fave 5 post as well. So much going on with your family these days… Has having a blog been kind of a stabilizing thing these months — the place to “think,” and the community of readers?
