February 5


I have come that they may have life, and that
they may have it more abundantly.

God commanded the man, … “In the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” § She took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.

The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. § If by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. § Since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. § Our Savior Jesus Christ … has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. § For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

John 10:10; Gen. 2:16–17; 3:6; Rom. 6:23; 5:17;
1 Cor. 15:21–22; 2 Tim. 1:10; 1 John 5:11–12; John 3:17


The judgment seat.

We know that the judgment of God is according to truth. § When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.

Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. § Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. § There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.

We are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.

2 Cor. 5:10; Rom. 2:2; Matt. 25:31–32; 13:43; Rom. 8:33–34; 8:1; 1 Cor. 11:32
