Imagine that you had a wealthy relative, and one day her attorney called to tell you she had died and left you a million dollars. The money, he added, was now deposited in a bank in your name, and you could draw on it at any time.
You’d act on it, accepting by faith that what the attorney had told you was true, and you were now a millionaire.
In a far greater way God offers us a gift – the gift of salvation in Jesus Christ. Christ has done everything possible to provide it for you; all you must do is receive it.
This is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life.
