Eternal Life or Eternal Death: Your Choice (John 5:24-30)

Pastor David Zooeff, March 15, 2020
Part of the John: The Gospel of the Son of God series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Our Lord continues to argue for His equality with the Father, by virtue of the fact He bestows salvation on all who believe on Him (John 5:24-26), and by judging all humanity by what they do with Him (John 5:27-30).

John 5:24-30

24Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 25Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 26For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; 27And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. 28Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. 30I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. (KJV)
