1 JOHN 5:13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.
God assures believers of eternal life, based on our acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our acceptance of the Lord is the condition for eternal life because Gods purpose for Christ’s death was the payment for a debt we could not pay. That debt was sin.
On the cross, Jesus became your sin bearer and not only did he bear your sin, but he gave you His righteousness in return (2 Cor. 5:21). When you believed in Christ, you received his life and He forgave your sin debt. Christ’s death was a permanent transaction and because it was permanent, so were the results: forgiveness and eternal life (John 6:40).
Your belief in Christ’s death on the cross as the payment for your sin, assures you of eternal life.

Lord if someone were to offer me a lifetime of riches, I would jump at it, so why is it so difficult to believe Your great and wonderful promises? You offer so much more than a lifetime of riches and blessings, You offer an eternal inheritance that will be filled with more than we could ever imagine.
