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

14:1 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”

Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else believe on account of the works themselves.

12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. (ESV)
