Anyone who Believes
Second Week of Easter
Anyone who believes in the Son has eternal life, but anyone who refuses to believe in the Son will never see life: the anger of God stays on him.
John the Baptist is replying to his disciples who are complaining that Jesus is baptising and everyone is going to him. John backs up the authority that Jesus has to do what He has come to do. John not only recognises the divinity of Jesus but endorses His authority as the only way to eternal life.
Christianity isn't just a nice way for nice people to live nicely. It's a matter of life and death! When presented with who Jesus is (the Son of God) and why I need Him (for eternal life), there's no middle road. I either accept or reject. Today I accept what Jesus is offering me, eternal life. What a privilege, what a gift!
Dear Jesus, my Lord and my God. Thank you for what You have won for me and my loved ones... eternal life!
Little Flower, please pray for me.
