Delivered from Wrath

John 3:36

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him,” John 3:36.

Believe means “to give mental assent to”; believe not is translated from the Greek word for disobey, and abides is from the word meno meaning “to dwell or set up housekeeping.” A person who possesses everlasting life has placed his eternal destiny in the hands of Jesus Christ and asked God for pardon, believing Christ’s sacrifice paid for his sins. The one who does not obey Christ’s invitation will not see eternal life but has set up housekeeping under the wrath of God.

How can a person go through life without God’s grace to help him through the trials of life? At a funeral one usually sees two groups of people. One group has gone through the gauntlet holding God’s hand, depending on Christ’s strength. The other group stares blank-faced into the future with no hope. These have set up camp under the wrath of God. How sad when God has already provided the sacrifice to bring them into His presence as His children. All their time here on earth could be spent depending on Him as their daddy, Abba.

 

JUST SAYING

What a sad way to spend life on earth, living under God’s wrath, headed to the eternal lake of fire!
