"We accept man's testimony, but God's testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life."
What I love about this passage is all the "has"and "haves". God has already done what needs to be done for us, and we have right now what we need for eternal life. We have Jesus. Praise Him! Like I've mentioned before, one of my favorite verses of a hymn, is from Amazing Grace. It's:
"When we've been there 10,000 years, bright shining as the sun, we've no less days to sing his praise, than when we've first begun."
Lately, I have heard several people who say they are Christian say that there are other world religions that also lead to God. I even heard someone refer to someone who is not a Christian as being "religious" and a good person. I'm sorry, but being religious or a good person is not what makes anyone right with God. Don't be mad at me, like one of the people did though. I didn't create the world, and I did not write the Bible. If you want to find God, you will find him through faith that Jesus took your place on the cross and died for your sins.
