What does God's Word (the Bible) say about positively knowing that we have been given everlasting life and why the significance?  First let us examine what God's Word states in the following Bible verses:

bullet

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God 
so that you may know that you have eternal life. 
I John 5:13

bullet

But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the 
Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. 
John 20:31

bullet

I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent 
me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over
from death to life.  
John 5:24

bullet

That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in 
your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 
 
Romans 10:9

The above verses clearly let us know that God wants us to know that we have been given eternal life.  But why?  Simply put, here are two reasons:    

  1.      God Loves You!  

  2.      We will be more fruitful in that we will allow the "Fruit of the Spirit" to shine forth in our lives if we know that we have eternal life.  "Fruit of the Spirit" are defined in more detail on the "First Steps" page.
