Featuring Nehemiah Jacob

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I hope this letter finds you well.

Here's another edition of our magazine that comprises one of God's promises for each of us amidst all the suffering here on earth: eternal life. In this edition, we share biblical perspectives on eternity written by different authors around the world. We also share the story of Nehemiah Jacob, a Christian artist who is touching thousands of people's lives with his music.

John 3:36 reminds us that believing in Jesus is crucial for salvation and eternal life. It encourages us to trust Him completely and share His message with others. Eternity is not something we earn like a reward; it's a gift available in an instant. Jesus demonstrated this truth on the cross when He assured a repentant criminal, "Today, you will be with me in paradise" (Luke 23:43). Despite the man's past and lack of opportunity to do good deeds, his simple faith in Jesus granted him eternal life. His disciples emphasized this truth, writing, "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Following Jesus is the only way to live eternally in heaven, but it isn't always easy. It is a lifelong journey of faith, transformation, and discipleship as we seek to become more like Him and fulfill His purposes for our lives.

God bless you.

In His Service
