God the Father sent us His One and Only Son, so that through our faith in Jesus Christ, we could be born again by the Holy Spirit. We who believe in Him, have turned from the darkness of this world’s lies to the light and glory of Christ’s truth. We have moved from death to life. Therefore, we are no longer condemned by God, and we will not perish—unlike those who refuse to believe.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them (Jn 3:36. NIV).
Quite the opposite is true for believers, one day we will see the Kingdom of God.
If we live according to the truth of God’s Word, we need not fear when our works are seen by God. Living according to the Word requires us to love God more than we love the things of this world. We will be conflicted between what we want to do and what God wants us to do. It is an inner conflict of wills: ours versus God’s. The more we love the things of this world, the more difficult it is to give them up. The Holy Spirit, however, helps us to be filled with the love of Christ and an abiding love for Christ. The Spirit teaches us to know and do the Father’s will.
