"Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”
As we approach the Lord it is essential to know that it is not about how much we know or how much we understand. It is all about believing in Him. We don’t have to know everything about God to believe. You just have to know He is God. You have to know that He is not only able but willing to do what He promises. Just as we use so many things everyday that we “don’t have to understand” how it works to use them - so we can believe in God because HE IS and he is willing to reveal Himself to us. What we do want to know is His reality. We want to experience Him. Believing can come before or after an encounter with God, but what is important is that we believe.
“But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”
Jesus Christ is the Lord of Life. He is the Source of Life. His words are eternal life. There is no other place to turn but to Jesus. The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy but He has come to give us life to the overflow. (John 10:10)
He has promised rivers of living water to flow forth from the inward man for those who believe in Him. That is a continual river of refreshing that you can access 24/7. It springs up to eternal life. Eternal life is the substance of heaven, not just a place you go or ticket you receive. Eternal life begins now when you believe in Jesus Christ. Open up your heart in faith, believing and receiving of His never-ending goodness today!
