“And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.” (1 John 5:11,12)

Good leaders know that communicating truth is extremely important if your followers are to trust you. Shooting straight with them is definitely the way to go. Our Heavenly Commander knows this and has chosen to communicate truth through His Word.

In these verses, the apostle John testifies that God has made a way for every person to have eternal life through His Son, Jesus Christ. But John doesn’t stop there. He plainly states that those who have Christ have eternal life. Those who do not have Christ do not have eternal life. There is no middle ground.

In the midst of busy lives, it’s tempting to think only about the here and now. But Jesus spoke many times about the afterlife and the importance of preparing for it. The Lord is not speaking in riddles. Isn’t it time for some honest assessment? Have you committed your life to Christ? Jesus wants you on His team.
