There are many very precious saying of Jesus in the Bible, and there are a number found in John chapter 6. We read there for example, Jesus saying, ‘I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.” We also read the wonderful assurance in verse 37 “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”
At a recent prayer meeting we looked at verse 47. What a glorious promise we have in that verse: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.“ A simple, but precious promise. So very precious because it fell from the lips of the Lord Jesus Christ. He, being God as well as man, cannot lie. He cannot deceive and in this statement He does not.
Those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ have everlasting life. How do we know? Because He said so. He is trustworthy and thus worthy of our trust, elsewhere He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)
As this year draws to an end do you believe on Him?
Consider well that precious promise:
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.“
