I hadn’t been a Christian very long when I had a conversation with another Believer…a delightful lady who had just turned 100 years of age. I asked if she knew she was going to heaven when she died, and she answered, “I hope so.” Her reply surprised me and even made me question my own tiny mustard-seed faith as a brand-new Christian. If she was unsure of her eternal fate, should I be? But more importantly, how could I know, that I know, that I know I was going to heaven? These answers lie within this Book of I John. First, we are to believe in the Name of God’s Son, Jesus Christ. (I John 3:23) and when we put our faith and trust in the character, authority, and power of Jesus, with each encounter, there is opportunity for progressive experience and growth. And from that comes new understanding, and a deepening faith. For “God has given us eternal life and this life is in His Son.” (I John 5:11)
