“And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.” – 1 John 5:11
Either you believe God’s testimony or you declare God a liar (v.10).
Note: God has given us eternal life because we don’t have it in ourselves. It is given in His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
This reveals two things: our sinfulness (dead in trespasses, Eph. 2:1, 5; 5:14; Col. 2:13) and His graciousness.
