We have a clear understanding of why John wrote his gospel. John 20:31 tells us that “these [things] are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.” One of the great purposes of this great Gospel written about 90 A.D. is that it was written to remind us of the importance of two things. One, that Jesus is God and therefore able to provide us redemption, and two, as God, He is the only accesses to eternal life (John 14:6). If you have not read this gospel in awhile, it would be beneficial for you to walk through this gospel, and see how Jesus is revealed to be not only the Son of God, but God the Son. John makes it clear that Jesus was not created at the incarnation, but was alive before His incarnation. The value of this is that He has the right, desire, and ABILITY (emphasis mine) to provide us the redemption that He came to provide. As a result we can rest in the assurance of His Word. Take time this week to review this gospel, and rest in the truths it contains.
