Listen and Live


22 …the Father judges no one. Instead, he has given the Son absolute authority to judge, 23 so that everyone will honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son is certainly not honoring the Father who sent him.
24 “I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.
25 “And I assure you that the time is coming, indeed it’s here now, when the dead will hear my voice—the voice of the Son of God. And those who listen will live.
The Father has life in himself, and he has granted that same life-giving power to his Son. 27 And he has given him authority to judge everyone because he is the Son of Man. 28 Don’t be so surprised! Indeed, the time is coming when all the dead in their graves will hear the voice of God’s Son, 29 and they will rise again. Those who have done good will rise to experience eternal life, and those who have continued in evil will rise to experience judgment.
–Jesus Christ, the Lord. — John 5:22-29

It was always God’s desire for mankind to live their lives in relationship with Him.
By Adam, that relationship was broken, but through Christ, that relationship was restored.
Through Adam, we all inherit death.Through faith in Jesus Christ, we become reborn and inherit eternal life.

This new life includes the forgiveness of our sins, healing, and true peace, that is, everything we need for spiritual health, emotional health and physically health.

God is love.  He loves us all and desires that none should die in their sins and be forever separated from Him.  That is why He sent Jesus Christ.  This new life is available to all who believe and receive Him.
