Does Jesus Give You Eternal Life?

Take a moment to read our devotional today about John 5:24

[Jesus said,] “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.”
John 5:24

Like a runner with sore feet, we often struggle to keep putting one foot in front of the other. During these moments, we’re tempted to quit the race of faith and just go our own way. We want to pursue selfish pleasures that provide instant gratification instead of resisting temptation by trusting God. Often, the enemy of our souls knows that we’re vulnerable and weak, weary and overwhelmed. He may try to lure us away from the path of God’s righteousness by throwing sinful comforts and addictive idols in front of us.

Running away from the struggles of life never provides relief for long, especially after we’ve experienced God’s goodness. Temptations may appeal to our senses or offer an illusion of rest and comfort. But ultimately, they just distract us from what matters most. If we want to run the race of faith, we must be prepared to keep going. And when we can’t, we must trust God to carry us.

We’ve already crossed the finish line from death to life. God will sustain us as we keep running.

Pray: “Lord, I believe that you died for my sins and know that you have secured the prize for me. Help me to keep running the race of faith, one day at a time.”
