The Life Changing LifeJohn 3:36: 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 5:24: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.1 John 5:11-12: 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.
Notice that all the verses above are in the PRESENT tense. People who receive Christ into their hearts get eternal life immediately. It is not something they get later or after they die.Romans 6:4: Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Not every Christian understands that he has eternal life in him already and not every Christian knows how to live accordingly. Sadly, Christians are not always willing to have their physical lives changed by the spiritual life that is in them. They don*t know that the greatest joy comes to them when they walk in that blessed newness of life.Galatians 2:20: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Jesus is the source of the life-changing life and He wants those who possess it to share it with others. He wants their lives to become life-changing lives. Jesus gives Christians THE life-changing life and wants to give them A life-changing life. Are you living a life-changing life?John 7:38: He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. Charles Haddon Spurgeon on Romans 14:8: We live unto the Lord.
