But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. John 1:12
Our search for the pathway to eternal life has taken us now to the Gospel of John. If a person has limited time in which to search the Bible for verses which tell us how we might gain eternal life, there are probably no better books to search than John and Romans.
We receive Jesus when we “believe”, as this verse tells us. What we “believe” is what Jesus, as recorded in the Bible, tells us about Himself and what He did for us. Jesus came to earth from heaven, where He had lived and will live for eternity, to suffer and die on the cross, to pay the penalty for our sins. Revelation 1:5,8,18.
