“Everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life.” JOHN 6:40

Suppose this world was ruled by a dark power, and the planet was under the control of an enemy who sought your destruction. Further, suppose this enemy sent his evil son into the world to get his will done. There would be no Christmas. How could we celebrate the birth of the one who came to destroy us?

Instead of four Gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John—sounding out the good news, you would have four alarm bells, sounding out the bad news. Instead of, “I have come down from heaven to do the will of him who sent me,” you would hear, “I have come up from hell, to do the will of him who sent me.” However dark this world seems, it is not ruled by some dark power. God, in His abundant goodness, offers eternal life to every person.

Jesus did not come into the world to condemn it, but to save it. Why would you run away from a Savior like this? Why would you stand at a distance from Him? If you come to Him, He will never cast you out. Come to Him and believe in Him. Receive from Him the eternal life that He offers to you. Your hope is not based on your feeble hold on Christ, but on His sure grip on you.

C. H. Spurgeon preached, “Never fear that there is anything in the secret purposes of God which can contradict the open promises of God.” The will of the Father for all who believe is eternal life. This means resurrection. You will be completely redeemed and no part of you will be lost.
