Jesus was sent by God to the world to give us eternal life, but what must we do to obtain eternal life? Follow Christ and leave everything that is not to His liking. To separate from the world and its desires in order to receive that beautiful promise.
Let us not forget that, if we do not confess with our mouths that Jesus is the Lord and that on the third day He rose from the dead, we will not receive eternal life, because He is life.
And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
1 John 5:11
Here the apostle John is making it clear to us that Jesus is the promise, who was sent by God for the salvation of our souls, because this was the Messiah sent by God so that we would be freed from evil and so that we could open our eyes and let us not be deceived by the enemy of souls.
Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:12
Remember that everyone who has already accepted Jesus as their only and sufficient savior has eternal life, because He is life, and it is from Him that the peace that runs through your interior flows, bringing encouragement to your soul, restoring your life, He is the one who removes the obstacles that are before you.
Because Jesus came to give life and life in abundance, but this life that is eternal, will only be received by one who is willing to leave everything for the Lord, because this wonderful life can not be found in man, but in God, who is our savior and refuge.
