Daily Bread 4/22/2022


Daily Bread – April 22, 2022 (The Sixth Day – Genesis 1:24-31) John 5:24 – With absolute certainty I tell you, those who hear My Word and believe in the One Who has sent Me have eternal life, and shall not come into judgment, but have passed from death into life. God Has Given His Life To Us In Jesus By believing the report the Father has given to us of His Son, we presently have eternal life and have passed from the realm of death to the realm of life (1 John 3:14; Ephesians 2:1-5; Colossians 1:13). God has made it all so simple: All we have to do is to believe His Word, just as the ruler who came asking Jesus to come to his house to heal his son believed the word Jesus spoke (John 4:49-50). Having received eternal life does not mean our bodies will not die one day (or be changed at the coming of the Lord Jesus). It means we have been made a new creation, that the old has passed away and everything has become new (2 Corinthians 5:17). Eternal life is a quality of life as much as it is a duration of time. The quality of life found in eternal life is an abundant life full of love, joy, peace, and all the power and authority granted to us by God through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. God has broken the power of death that held us captive, and has infused His own life into us by the Spirit He has given to us. This is the life the Father has given to us in His Son! If we are not willing to believe the report the Father has given to us of His Son, then we make God a liar (1 John 5:10-13). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
