30 Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. 31 But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
Jesus was sent to this earth and He ministered, He served, and He gave Himself as our sacrifice to pay the penalty for our sins. These acts of Jesus were written down so that we may believe in Christ. When we believe, we are given eternal life through the finished work of Jesus.
We have received a wonderful gift from the Lord—the gift of salvation (Ephesians 2:8-10). This gift is received by faith in Jesus Christ. Trusting in Christ through faith results in the forgiveness of sins (Ephesians 1:7), eternal life (John 3:16), and the abiding presence of the Lord (1 Corinthians 6).
Jesus comes that we might have life instead of death. Jesus reaches to us so that we might have light instead of darkness. His love is amazing for sure.
Have you received this gift of salvation? Repent and believe in Jesus today. He lived for your righteousness, died for your sins, and was raised to life in victory (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Trust in Him this day!
The Scriptures are given so that people may believe. The question then is very simple. Are you going to believe them or not? The choice is yours.
