BELIEF

John 6:47

 

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

 

 

LESSON

 

Jesus introduced His repetition and summary of the essential truth He was teaching with another strong affirmation. This summary continues through verse 51. He repeated what He had told Nicodemus more concisely. In spite of the truth of the Father’s drawing the elect to Himself, it is still imperative that they believe in Jesus. This is the human responsibility. However, belief in Jesus is not anything meritorious. It is simply the proper response to God’s working. The result is “eternal” or everlasting “life,” that the new believer begins to enjoy the moment he or she believes in Jesus. All of this is part of what Jesus meant when He claimed to be the “Bread of Life.” Eternal life was at stake, not just physical life.
