Read John 6:47-59
[Jesus said] “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes has eternal life.” – John 6:47 (NLT)
Believes in what, exactly? Jesus is our Messiah and Lord. He is the Bread of Life, come down from (and now returned to) heaven. He is God, He lived a perfect life, He died in our place, and God has raised Him from the dead. He will come again to gather His own and judge the world. At first hearing, even some of this is a lot to understand (and believe). But Jesus was also fully human, and understands our hesitation and doubt. So He keeps confronting us with His reality, and His Spirit enables us to understand and believe more and more as we journey through our Christian life.
