And the testimony is this: that God has given us eternal life; and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.' 

1 John 5:11-12 

THOUGHT: Anyone who receives Christ into his life by faith has eternal life and is saved. We must not trust our faith in religion, in human ideas, in what we do or what we think, but in the one who justifies the sinner. Our faith must rely on the grace of God, through what Jesus Christ has done for us, this is the faith that saves the sinner. Grace is a favor that came from God to us, without any merit on our part. God accomplished for us what we could never do!!! Therefore, let us trust in the death and resurrection of Christ and not in the teachings of men. Let us trust the testimony of God and not men. Let us trust God's works and not ours.

Prayer: Dear Father, thank You for all that You have done for me, for Your mercy, for Your grace, and for Your love. Thank you for eternal life, and for the privilege of being called a son. Thank you for Jesus, for the life He gave in my behalf, for the blood he shed for me, yours for the example of obedience, kindness and love. I want to put my trust in the Lord more and more each day. I pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
