Devotional: John 5

Just noticed yesterday’s blog didn’t post right. I fixed that. So sorry. I use an app on my phone to post them and the app updated and prevented those from publishing. Fixed now!

“I assure you: Anyone who hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not come under judgment but has passed from death to life. (John 5:24 HCSB)

This is a verse I have heard many times. So many times.

SO many times.

A lot of pastors preach information, and then lead to salvation. This is what I remember growing up.

But this verse, even being so familiar to me (and probably familiar to you as we’ll if you grew up in church) is also an amazing one.

Anyone who believes has eternal life.

You can’t out sin God. There isn’t a thing you can do that God doesn’t have enough grace for.

His grace is always more abundant than what we need. And that’s comforting.

Even after we accept Christ, and we fail to live like him as we are called- we still have more grace that God has for us.

That’s praiseworthy. Our God is good.
