    Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not. Whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him neither known Him. 1John 3:6.
  • Mbugua
    Eternal life is an immortality which involves not only the soul but also the body since from creation man was made for never ending life, not death. The death and resurrection of Jesus provide the basis for and give the picture of the devinely appointed redemption life. To have eternal life means more than to live forever and not only future possession but also a present reality

    Chapter 3 of the book of John testifies of JESUS CHRIST, SON OF THE LIVING GOD. JESUS IS THE TRUTH, THE WAY, THE LIGHT. HE WHO is THE WAY said; no man cometh unto the FATHER except through by me. HE came down from the FATHER of LIGHT. HE IS THE LIGHT that shines in darkness. He that loves HIM will draw to that LIGHT. The word declares, the FATHER was in HIM reconciling the world back unto HIMSELF.
