John 5

Daily Devotional from John 5—

Verse 24
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.

There is this judgment that all of us deserve: it’s death. A criminal's death, since we are all sinners. But by simply believing God, in believing Jesus is the Son of God and that He is God, we no longer receive punishment, we are no longer judged! I am so glad that that’s all we have to do. Just believe, that’s it! Jesus took the judgment you deserved and nailed it to the cross. He rose to new life so that we can have new life, free from sin and made righteous before the Father.

If you believe this, know today that it is finished and you can feel secure in your relationship with God. Jesus did it all for you but that’s not the end, it’s just a starting point for living a full life with God.
