How do we receive this life to the full?
Jesus says, “I am the way the truth and the life.” (John 14:6)
We start this relationship through faith, and receive this life to the full as a free gift.
Faith is not simply knowing in our mind the existence of God and Jesus. Faith is not temporary or fleeting.
Faith is Knowledge, Agreement, and Trust.
It is understanding who Jesus is and what He did for you, agreeing that He is in fact the Lord and Savior, and trusting in Him alone for life to the full.
We cannot in any way earn or deserve this relationship with God.
The Bible says, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Trusting in Jesus is the only way by which we can receive this life He promises.
