“Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know and testify of what we have seen” – “whoever believes will in Him (Jesus) have eternal life”

Today’s devotion comes from John 3:9-15.

“Nicodemus said to Him, “How can these things be?”  Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and do not understand these things?  Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know and testify of what we have seen, and you do not accept our testimony.  If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?  No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven:  the Son of Man.  As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;  so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life.”  John 3:9-15.

Faith in Jesus (including the reasons for it) is the subject of today’s devotion.

First, those who believe in Him (Jesus) have eternal life.

“As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;  so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life.”  Verses 14-15.

Second, Jesus is the perfect witness Who can teach us heavenly things because He has been in heaven.

“No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven:  the Son of Man.”  Verse 13.

Third, Jesus testifies of what He has seen and knows, so we should believe Him.

“Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know and testify of what we have seen, and you do not accept our testimony.”  Verse 11.
