Believe in Jesus
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. John 11:25
Erin Moran recently died at the age of 56. She was well known for her character Joanie Cunningham on the hit television show, Happy Days. In 1982, she did a spinoff of Happy Days called Joanie Loves Chachi. However, that only lasted one season due to low ratings. Erin fell into a deep depression after her stardom was over. She became a heavy drinker and lost all of her money. In the days before her passing, she was found living in a trailer park. I honestly don’t know if she had a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. We can only hope and pray that she believed in Him.
In the above Scripture, Jesus makes it very clear to us that by believing in Him we have eternal life. He explains that our earthly bodies will die, but we’ll live in heaven with Him forever. What an awesome promise! The grave has no power over us because our Savior has already conquered it. We don’t have to fear death. Unfortunately, non-believers are in great danger if they don’t believe in Jesus.
John 3:36- He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.
The Good News is that Jesus died for the whole world. He came to save us all from eternal damnation. As Christians, our number one mission should be to bring as many people as possible to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. God has called us to share the gospel message so that all would believe in Jesus and be saved. People aren’t saved by good works. If that was the case, then we could save ourselves and Jesus’ death would’ve been in vain. All we need to do is believe in Jesus and we will be saved.
John 3:16- For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
God has made it very simple for us. Do one thing…. Believe in Jesus.
