For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
What an astounding offer! God, Himself, offers eternal life to every person on earth; this life begins by one admitting that he is wrong, and God is right! It is matchless, priceless, too good to be true, but it is true, eternally true! This offer of eternal life is dependent on three things.
Firstly, one must believe, have faith in God, and by this, entrust himself/herself to Him. Hebrews 11:6 says, “but without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Again, to accept this offer, one must accept the faith that God apportions him, the faith to believe that He exists! In order to approach God to receive His offer, one must believe! Therefore, faith is indispensable to the process.
Secondly, one must believe that God rewards the diligent seeker! The moment we trust God through faith, our eyes are opened to who He is, causing us to believe and know that He rewards the diligent seeker, our understanding having been opened.
Thirdly, one must believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God! Upon believing in the truthfulness of God, we instantaneously know Jesus, His Son. He then forgives us, and the Father removes our sin, hindrances, obstacles, to Him through the blood of Jesus, His Son. Through Jesus, He confirms His irrevocable offer to us! To the natural person, this is incredible, ridiculous, but to the one who believes and receives, it is eternally credible, believable, and substantiated by the gift of the Holy Spirit who is that great witness to us that this offer is undeniably true! The Holy Spirit is the guarantee of the veracity of the offer until Christ returns!
The offer has come by the offering of Christ Jesus that we might receive the eternal inheritance!
