“I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.” 1 John 5:13 (NIV)
These words were written to those who had believed in Jesus Christ and accepted Him as their Savior. They apply to us today if we have believed in Jesus Christ. It is important for all of us to know that we have eternal life and to never forget it. There is so much in this world that wants to draw our attention away from this truth. We are facing fierce spiritual battle against wickedness and we are apt to over emphasize the importance of things around us and things that are happening in our world. Material things and social relationships can come to mean more to us than they should. We need to remember that we have eternal life and we are headed for eternity. We need to consider the value of things in the light of that fact.
