Normandy Park exists to offer the gift of salvation that Jesus makes available to us. Although the Bible often speaks of salvation, one verse, in particular, explains that FAITH in Jesus brings FREEDOM from judgment and life FOREVER.
John 5:24 says, “Truly truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes Him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment but has passed from death to life.”
This verse tells us that…
Jesus mentioned judgment and death.
God created a perfect world. Unfortunately, Adam and Eve rejected Him and chose sin, bringing pain and death into the world. That sin nature was passed down, separating us from God and condemning us to hell. The good news is God offers us salvation.
Jesus said we must believe.
It is not a reward for hard work or good deeds. Instead, the Bible says we receive eternal life by turning from sin and placing our faith in Jesus.
Jesus said we do not come into judgment.
It satisfies the judgment our sin deserves because Jesus died in our place on the cross. His resurrection proves His power over death and the grave. Believers in Jesus are freed from an eternity in hell.
Jesus calls this blessing ‘Eternal Life.’
His forgiveness includes past and future sins. He prepares a place for us in heaven. He promises you eternal life today if you repent and believe.
