We Have Eternal Life By Faith In Jesus Christ! (John 14:1-12)

Terrel Kesterson, September 17, 2017
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Here’s a quote, with a little paraphrasing, which describes what religion is to many people today:
People will often say they are ‘spiritual’ but not religious; which usually means that they
will believe any religion that doesn’t involve Jesus. Popular choices include (religions in
which you don’t have to give up stuff and actually go to ‘church’). Mostly they are into
religion that fits really well into their [home décor] or wardrobe and doesn’t require them
to do very much. (quoted from the web site: “Stuff White People Like”)
In contrast to that, how blessed you and I are to have been given faith in Jesus Christ, and with
Him, eternal life!

John 14:1-12

1Let not your heart be troubled: believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I come again, and will receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also. 4And whither I go, ye know the way. 5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; how know we the way? 6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7If ye had known me, ye would have known my Father also: from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and dost thou not know me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; how sayest thou, Show us the Father? 10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I say unto you I speak not from myself: but the Father abiding in me doeth his works. 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. 12Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father.
