so that everyone who believes in him will have eternal life. – John 3:15 (NLT)
Today’s Bible verse really shows the true love of God. God didn’t exclude anyone from eternal life. It doesn’t matter where you have come from, where you’ve been, or what you’ve done. This verse tells us that everyone who believes is included. God’s love extended to anyone who would accept Him.
The next part of the verse talks about believing. Even though God wants everyone to know Him and experience the goodness of eternal life with Him, not all will. It’s up to each person to choose to believe on Jesus. Every person has to choose to put their trust and believe in Jesus to experience the fullness of eternal life with God.
It’s great to know that God doesn’t make it hard for us to have eternal life with Him. We don’t have to do anything other than simply believe in Jesus for our salvation. Today, spend some time thanking God for how easy He made it to know Him. Thank Him that no one is excluded from the opportunity to experience eternal life with God, it’s just up to each person to believe in Jesus.
