Here are a few more scriptures to read and take into your spirit.

John 6:47

In order to inherit this eternal life you must be careful what you sow so that you can reap a just reward. What a person plants, he will harvest. You want to plant love, unselfishness and faithfulness to Godís Word. In order to live a righteous life you have to know Godís Word and what is expected of you.

1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have confessed so well before many witnesses. (New Living translation)

Always remember it is not just about hearing or reading the Word, it is about understanding and doing what the Word is calling you to do. When you donít know what to do, go to the Word for guidance and ask for wisdom to understand. Wisdom only comes from God.

Continue to read the Word, act accordingly and share the Word with your loved ones and friends so that they may also receive the gift of eternal life!

God Bless!
