“Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.” John 6:47 (NIV)
We are a fallen people in a fallen world, but we have a risen Savior who has risen from this fallen world. He has made a way for us. We are saved by the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ because He has taken the place of us in being a sinless sacrifice. It is only by believing in Jesus, not ourselves, that we have eternal life.
We must exercise faith in the atonement of Christ’s sacrifice as perfect enough to save us. No circumstance or condition of our fallen humanity was overlooked in the plan of Calvary and no part of it requires our contribution for its success.
Let’s pray today in rejoicing that salvation is all because of Jesus and not us.
