"Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him." (John 3:36 NIV)
In today's scripture, we note that little word has. It’s actually written that whoever believes in the son has, not shall be given, eternal life. Eternal life - new life begins here and now and continues into eternity. It concerns another dimension of life, than that lived by the person who is not born-again. It is about the life of God - eternal life.
When Nicodemus came to Jesus by night Jesus tells him that in order to enter the kingdom of God he must be born again. It is in the rebirth of the life in God, that eternal life is implanted in humans. This happens when we believe in the Son, i.e. we believe that Jesus is the Son of God who died for our sins and gave us the right to become children of God.
Thank you Jesus that you have made it possible for me to live the eternal life here and now. Thank you that my faith in You is enough for me to have this life.
