2011-01-11 ILC Chapel — Believe: The benefit of believing…

Believe: The benefit of believing is directly proportional of the object of that belief.


Date : 2011-01-11
Speaker : Professor John Reim

John 3:14–16 (Listen)

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.1

For God So Loved the World

16 “For God so loved the world,2 that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.


[1] 3:15 Some interpreters hold that the quotation ends at verse 15

[2] 3:16 Or For this is how God loved the world


John 3:18 (Listen)

18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.


John 3:36 (Listen)

36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.


Hymn: TLH 381, st. 1: I Know my Faith is Founded Organ Audio

1. I know my faith is founded 
On Jesus Christ, my God and Lord; 
And this my faith confessing 
Unmoved I stand upon His Word. 
Man’s reason cannot fathom 
The truth of God profound; 
Who trusts her subtle wisdom 
Relies on shifting ground. 
God’s Word is all-sufficient, 
It makes divinely sure, 
And trusting in its wisdom, 
My faith shall rest secure.
