Day 48 –
Part of accepting your life as a Believer includes accepting your spirituality. It also includes accepting the testimony of God and his ability to give our spiritual bodies another chance of living physically upon the new earth promised in Revelation 21:1-4. Apostle John said our Father God has given us a promise of eternal life, but we have to believe it exists and accept it with confidence. “And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 1 John 5:11-12 NIV- More Commentary @ http://biblehub.com/niv/1_john/5.htm And in Revelation 21 @ http://biblehub.com/niv/revelation/21.htm
13I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may knowt hat you have eternal life. 14This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask— we know that we have what we asked of him. 16If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life.I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that. 17All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death. 18We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them. 19We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. 20We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. 21Dear children, keep yourselves from idols. 1 John 5 NIV @ http://biblehub.com/niv/1_john/5.htm And at the Variety of Commentaries located @ http://biblehub.com/1_john/5-13.htm Plus at the Variety of Commentaries located @ http://biblehub.com/commentaries/1_john/5-13.htm
– As a Believer, my Father God blesses me with eternal life after I repent and stops committing sins. My Father God blesses because I believe in the gift provided by the gift of salvation and he specifically blesses me for believing that it exists and for fully accepting it with confidence. My Father God sees that I have faith in Him and He will reward me for my faith and keep me safe. As a Believer, my Father God blesses me because I am His child so He honors the prayers that I offer for other Believers who have not committed a sin that leads to death, and He forgives them and also gives them life after they repent and also accept the gift of salvation offered by Jesus Christ.
If We Ask, God Hears Us
by Steve Zeisler
“…There are two main ideas in the passage before us. One has to do with confidence in the presence of God. The other has to do with confidence, or being unthreatened, in the presence of the evil one. First John 5:13-21… Confidence in prayer - John's point is to strengthen those who believe so that they can live lives filled with confidence and vitality. He begins by talking about prayer, or life lived in God's presence: “approaching God." John gives us a wonderful description of the life of prayer---prayer that is not entered into grudgingly, foolishly, or fearfully; prayer that we do not shy away from because we're unsure of whether we'll be heard...” More Commentary @ https://www.pbc.org/system/message_files/7500/4443.html And for John 5:13-21 @http://biblehub.com/niv/1_john/5.htm And at the Variety of Commentaries located @ http://biblehub.com/1_john/5-13.htm Plus at the Variety of Commentaries located @ http://biblehub.com/commentaries/1_john/5-13.htm

“This is the confidence we have in approaching God, that if we ask anything according to His will, he hears us (I John 5:14). Our biggest problem relates to what has been instilled into our belief system over the years. It has been impressed upon us that we are to come humbly before God to make our request know to him. And it has been impressed upon us that we are less than what we truly are, for we are not worthy to come before God for any reason. And it has been impressed upon us to relate to
God as the slave related to the slave owner in the days of slavery. You see the slave would beg for and then accept whatever crumbs fell from the master’s table. But we are here to tell you that because of the new covenant, you have a Father-to-child relationship and not a Master-to-slave (servant) relationship. And as a child of God, you already know modesty, humbleness, and respectfulness. And as a child of God, you do not have to beg to have your prayers heard or answered. As a child of God, you have a right to come boldly to the throne of God, stand there bravely in the presence of the Almighty, and find grace to help you in your times of need (Hebrews 4:14-16)…” More Commentary @ https://plus.google.com/107063298911390340598/posts/L3DjzgZYBo1 And for John 5:14 @ http://biblehub.com/niv/1_john/5.htm And at the Variety of Commentaries located @ http://biblehub.com/1_john/5-13.htm Plus at the Variety of Commentaries located @ http://biblehub.com/commentaries/1_john/5-13.htm And for Hebrews 4:14-16 @
