Why You Must Believe on Jesus

I hope you don't find it odd that I am giving you a link to the audio of a sermon I preached last week. I generally think bloggers are a little odd for doing just that - hypocrite that I am. But we had lots of folks miss our Sunday worship services due to a sudden snow storm, and I am convinced that there are many others who might profit from considering John 3:31-36.

I sought to give 5 reasons from this text of the Bible why you must believe on Jesus Christ. If you are already a Christian, I think you will find some encouragement from the Word. If you have not made an about face from trusting in yourself to trusting in Christ yet, then I think you would be wise to listen. If you don't want to listen, then just read the words written by John long ago:

"He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven is above all. He bears witness to what he has seen and heard, yet no one receives his testimony. Whoever receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true. For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him."
