THEY SHOULD HAVE ETERNAL LIFE BUT I DON’T KNOW!!!
Listen to this saints and please get this in your spirit…study it.
John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.(KJV)
Almost all of us had this scripture taught to us as children and there are also some of us who heard it when someone witnessed to us when we were in our sin. I believe that we should be ever mindful of this scripture, because after salvation we still have need of it as a daily reminder in our walk. Amen
The word “should, ” in this verse is inditing that although many of us will be saved; some won’t take advantage of this awesome gift from God and gain eternal life. Why? Because some won’t or will not see the need to change.
Ok! Let’s look at the definition of should:
1. expressing desirability: expresses desirability or rightness
2. expressing likelihood or probability: to be scheduled or expected to be or do something
3. expressing conditions or consequences: used to express the conditionality of an occurrence and suggest it is not a given, or to indicate the consequence of something that might happen (used in conditional clauses)
So we can see that although salvation is a free gift, and requires belief. The probability of gaining eternal life is left up do us…we should gain eternal life with the Lord…but I don’t know. God desires for us to have it, but will we do the work necessary to change? Repent and stop sinning!
We cannot go to heaven living in sinful lifestyles. Amen.
