1 John 5:11 This is the testimony in essence: God gave us eternal life; the life is in his Son. So, whoever has the Son, has life; whoever rejects the Son, rejects life. (The Message Bible)
In the park this time of year are dozens of baby geese following adults around n groups. They scurry about among the grasses helping themselves to the food found there. Eventually they make their way to the water to swim and drink, their legs constantly in motion. They are full of life! We see it so pervasively in the spring, this power of life to give life. It is the nature of God to give life, not just for a season or time, but in an endless degree. The message of Jesus in his words and actions is that God gives life, in this world and forever. It is a gift we receive not something we earn or create on our own. God wants us to be as full of life as the baby geese, now and forever, and “the life is in his Son.” How can you grab that gift today?
