Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. — John 6: 47
Even in the beyond, faith is necessary in order to attain everlasting life. When one hears this Bible text one might ask: “So all we have to do is believe in Jesus in order to have everlasting life, that is, eternal fellowship with God?” On the one hand, my answer to this is: “Yes.” But on the other hand, it is not so easy to believe. What does it mean to believe anyway?
- Faith is more than a matter of supposing that something is true. It also includes hearing the call of God, saying yes to Him, trusting Him, obeying Him, and remaining loyal to Him.
- Even in the beyond it is necessary to believe in this manner, and to come to the altar of God.
- Supported by our prayers, many will be able to attain grace and redemption today.
