Jesus Is Our Source.

“What a wonderful God we have – He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the source of every mercy.” – II Corinthians 1:3

Jesus is unique as the source of life, because He actually conquered death itself. “You killed the author of life, but God raised Him from the dead. We are witnesses of this.” (Acts 3:15) “For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son also to have life in Himself.” (John 5:26)

Jesus came to earth as the source of eternal life, for those who would believe in Him as the promised Messiah. “In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.” (John 1:4) It is impossible to be spiritually redeemed without a relationship with Jesus, which includes accepting His atoning sacrifice for sin: “Jesus said to them, ‘Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.’ ” (John 6:53)

Believing in God Himself and having knowledge of the Scriptures is not good enough: “You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about Me, yet you refuse to come to Me to have life.” (John 5:39,40) “But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” (Acts 5:39)
