Keep Going, It is Worth It

I John 5, Revelation 2, 3

In the first part of I John 5:1, we read a statement every man, woman and child must know. If you put your complete trust in Jesus Christ, believe that He is God's Son Who died on the cross for our sins, was buried and raised again on the third day, you will be saved!

5:2 - We show that we love God when we love other believers. Every blood bought, born again child of God is my brother or sister and if I love God, I will love them. Think about it. We are going to be together for eternity.

5:3 - If we truly love God, then we will obey Him. How can we obey God, if we don't read His Word? (Psalm 119:11) - Thy word have I hid in my heart... The Word of God helps us to obey Him.

5:4, 5 - Through faith in Jesus Christ we will overcome the world.

Here are a few verses that show God's promises to us as overcomers.

Revelation 2:11 - No Second Death

Revelation 2:17 - New Name

Revelation 2:26-29 - We will reign with Him over our enemies

Revelation 3:5 - New clothes which speak of purity, my name is written in the Book of Life

Revelation 3:12 - New Jerusalem, continuously in God's presence

Revelation 3: 21 - Sit on the throne with God

Praise God for His grace and being true to His Word! It will be worth it all, when we see Him.
