    verses 5-9
    God loves all of us and He cares about us that is why He sent His Son to come and seek and save us. However Jesus knows and has a soft spot for them who are in dire need. His compassionate heart breaks to see us so helpless. Lord Jesus, thank you for your unfailing love that will not let go of us.

    It would seem from vs 29 that Jesus is basing his judgement on works done. Paul on the other hand says not of works so that any man should boast. James says faith and works he combines Jesus and Paul in his formula.there seems to be three different formulas to heaven

    Praise Jesus Christ! Our LORD and SAVIOR! Save all us sinners from our own demise

    Verse 17 shows that God has kept working and so has Jesus. We should be hard working in imitation of them.
  • Edward
    What I discover from reading John 5 is 'Tradition Vs new faith in Jesus Christ and what the Spirit of God is saying to the churches'
  • John
    This story of the rich man that Jesus is relaying to us was during the time of Moses. He Said they have Moses and the prophet if they will not here them neither will they hear one that has come from the dead. Those that choose to reject God have always been turned into hell.
