Scripture: John 5:24
Broadcast date: 05/09/2016

“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.” I love this scripture because it assures me that, the moment I accept Jesus, I HAVE everlasting life!

How many times have I been asked, “What is your favorite verse in the Bible?” For years I always replied, “my favorite verse is the one I am reading at any given time, they are all my favorites.” But guess what, in my old age, going on 95, I have settled on one verse that is definitely my favorite. It is John 5:24 and reads as follows: Jesus said, “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.” I love this scripture because it assures me that the moment I accept Jesus, I HAVE everlasting life! No guess work, no maybe’s, no perhaps—but a solid, definite declaration, I HAVE eternal life. Where do you stand? Have you accepted Jesus? If so, you are glory bound!
