Eternal Life

NOTE: You may listen to this song HERE.

God loved the world so much
That He gave His only Son,
So everyone who believes in Him will not die,
But have eternal life.

Christ lived a sinless life;
Yet He died a sinner’s death.
His Father reached into the tomb
And brought Him outside alive again.

I know Christ Jesus lives;
He’s given me new life:
A life of hope and joy and peace
And the promise of eternal life with Him.

God loved the world so much
That He gave His only Son.
Won’t you believe Jesus live and died and rose again
To give you eternal life?
Won’t you believe Jesus live and died and rose again
To give you eternal life?

About This Song:


16 
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
(NKJV)

The official Easter season may be several weeks behind us now, but for Christians the Easter season lasts all year long.

One of the first songs I ever wrote was John 3:16-17. Then a couple of years ago I felt led to write this one, which focuses only on John 3:16. Musically, it’s pretty simple, but it turned out to be more thought-provoking than I’d originally thought.

I’d never expected it to have four different emphases,. The first stanza refers to John 3:16. The second is the Easter story in a very small nutshell. The third is what I consider my own personal testimony about what being a Christian means. And the fourth is an invitation to non-believers to consider the truth about Jesus and become believers, too.

Any comments? I’d love to hear them.

Look for me again next Wednesday. Better still, subscribe to receive these weekly posts by email.

Best regards,
Roger
