The Name of the Only Begotten Son of God
“. . . whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16b)
“. . . but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18b).
How does someone get saved and receive eternal life?
Believe in Jesus Christ (John 3:16).
And believe in the name of Jesus Christ (John 3:18).
Why is it Both?
In our most holy faith, God is our everything. We believe in Him and in His name . . . and infinitely more.
We believe in the Father, in His name and in the many revelations of His name.
We believe in Jesus Christ, in His name and in the many revelations of His name.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, in His name and in the many revelations of His name.
What we believe in, we can receive. If we do not believe in it, we miss out.
We believe in the presence of Jesus . . . the power of God . . . the glory of the Lord, which is the Lord Himself . . .
We believe in the word of God and God’s words to us specifically.
We believe in heaven.
We believe in the holy angels.
We believe that . . .
Jesus gives the Kingdom
Jesus gives Himself
Jesus helps and comforts
Jesus reveals Himself
Jesus sets free
Jesus knocks on the door of Your heart
Jesus offers fellowship
Jesus is coming soon
Jesus is alive, forever
