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.

Discussion for John 3

  • Wayne
    Matt. 4:17, Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
  • David
    The thief on the cross simply believed upon Jesus. He spoke of no repentance as that means too have a change of mind and falls under works. Nowhere in the book of John does the word repentance appear, Nor does repent of one's sins. This fallacy has been added by man and adopted by most religions. Cannot add words to the Bible to fit whatever man's religious self righteous false Gospel dictates.
  • A disciple
    "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, WE speak that WE do know, and testify that WE have seen; and ye receive not OUR witness...For he whom God hath sent speaks the words of God: for God gives not the Spirit by measure." We also read; "...and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God." Things too high for us put us in our place! But the heathen rages!
  • Wayne
    Read I Corinthians 14:19 for clarification. God Bless.
  • Wayne
    Speaking in a tongue is a sign to unbelievers, not believers, as stated in Bible. Better to speak 5 words to edify believers than to speak in tongue not understood.
  • Wayne
    Jesus " very words" say to baptize in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
