People's Bible Notes for John 3:36


Joh 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life. Eternal life and eternal death turn upon trust in Christ. He who believes on the Son with a heartfelt, obedient faith, a faith that trusts all and surrenders all to the will of Christ, is born again and "hath eternal life" (Joh 6:54). The faith that saves is a faith that moves us to come to Christ.

    To Tabitha - remember Abraham taking Isaac up the mtn. to sacrifice him? But God provided a ram caught by it's horns in the brush. As God wasn't cruel enough to let A. follow through, neither would He be cruel enough to sacrifice His 'son'. The Bible says, God was MANIFEST in the flesh. God provided HIMSELF with a flesh body in the incarnation with Mary to be the sinless sacrifice for our sins.
