A perfect prescription for eternal life.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (John 5:24 KJV)
Everlasting life is a three-fold spiritual occasion made possible through the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross.
Jesus is speaking in this scripture verse giving His perfect prescription for spiritual health bringing about spiritual wholeness and new life:
- First, man must hear the gospel message of God with open ears and a softened heart.
- Second, man must choose to place his faith in God through the finished work of His Son on the cross.
- Third, man will desire to view sin as God sees it, indwelled with the Holy Spirit of God unto new spiritual life putting to death the old desires of his flesh as he walks in close fellowship with God.
