Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. John 3:36

One of the very first verses I memorized as a child was John 3:16; even non-believers can quote it, though it may have no meaning to them. If you dig deeper in scripture, you will find that God doesn’t play games when it comes to the eternal life offered through Jesus. Eternal life begins when you accept Jesus as your savior from your sin and condemnation; it’s not only an after-death experience. Jesus told Nicodemus that he must be born of water and Spirit to enter the kingdom of God. The Holy Spirit is necessary, and we receive it as a gift upon our faith in Jesus. Those without Jesus and his gift are already dead, and the wrath of God remains on them. Jesus is the only way to have life now and beyond. The teachings you hear saying that there are other ways into heaven are only lies; bits of misinformation given by the enemy to draw people away from Jesus. If you are unsure about your eternity, then I’m sure you are missing Jesus. Pray now for God to strengthen your faith and accept Jesus as your savior with your whole heart, unwavering and without a doubt. If you feel drawn to Jesus, it is because of the Holy Spirit; he will help you maintain your faith.
