(Eternal life; the fighting force)
TEXTS: Heb 11;1-3, Rms 12:1-3. Gal 3;24, Rms 1:17, 1John 5:4,10-13.
Good morning
We have been looking at the justification experience of the believer in Christ as the bedrock of the good experiences he can have in life.
Today I want us to begin to look at what is deposited in the believer the moment he gives his life to Christ. It is called eternal life, it is actually the force that does all the job. It presents itself in different forms as necessary. It is also refereed to as the quality that makes up the.person of God
"He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."1Jn 5:10-13.
Verse 4 of that chapter had first said that the only thing the believer has to overcome this world is his faith. The world is a system of human interactions with each other and with the elements that makes up the earth under the control of whoever has authority over it. The devil is having control over the earth for now and that can explain why things are the way they are. Everyday he perfects what he has started, he suggests more evil ideas to men, he makes worse diseases to come, facilitates natural disasters, intervenes in the electioneering processes of nations negatively ensures poverty increases, makes sure accidents happens and so on,
In the bid to explain the faith that can overcome such, apostle John tells us the faith contains eternal life that is the exact thing God is made up of. How possible is that, having the quality of God in us?. It should not be strange, God has always put measures of Himself in man. He has always wanted man to be in His image and likeness and it is this eternal life that bears the image of God.
Anyone who has the son has this eternal life in him. It is the right of the new birth.
Eternal life will fight diseases and sicknesses, it will fight lack and indebtedness, curses, disfavour, confusion. It will give protection and so on.
Look at verse 13 again, it says
"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." The verse is telling us that the believer cannot be confident enough in his faith in Jesus until he is aware of this eternal life. It is the bedrock of confidence.
Begin to shout it out loud that you have eternal life, the more you do the more the force goes into action and wins for you.
We will continue from here tomorrow, till then go and have a winning day in Jesus name amen.
CONFESSION: I have the life of God in me, I have the overcome over this world, the world ,the devil cannot overcome me again in Jesus name.
