An Exposition by Ronald Whitwam
NEW LIFE ACCORDING TO THE BOOK OF JOHN

John 10:10 I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

The Default Direction: THE FACT OF MAN'S SIN
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

The Calamity: THE JUDGEMENT FOR SIN
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

The Rescue: THE PAYMENT FOR SIN
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

The Big Choice: SALVATION THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST
John 5:24 Verily, 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.

The New Relationship: THE BELIEVER'S NEW POSITION WITH GOD
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.

The Promise: THE BELIEVER'S ASSURANCE OF SALVATION
John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
