Pastor Thomas Costello spoke on 1 John 5:6-13. He talked about the belief that our life to come is even more real than our life right now.
1 John 5:6-13
6 This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. 7 For there are three that testify: 8 the[a] Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. 9 We accept human testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. 10 Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
Questions for Further Thought and Discussion
- This section of scripture is about TESTIMONY. So take time to share your story with someone this week. Either about how you came to know Jesus or just where you are in your life. Everyone has a story.
- Pastor Thomas mentioned that there is a “world that is to come that is even more real than the one we are living in right now.” How do you react to that?
- Are you living as if this life is all that there is?
