50 And I know that [to obey] his command is life everlasting. Therefore, whatever I speak is just as the Father tells me to speak."8 [Jesus did nothing in his will, only by the Father's will; this is what it means when you pray: thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. We have to learn and be changed to be able to only do the Father's will on earth, the same as the Father's will is done in heaven by the angels.]
8 For he who sows to his own flesh will reap destruction from the flesh; but he who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit.
29 And he said to them, "Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children for the kingdom of God's sake,
30 Who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the world to come, life everlasting."
14 But whoever drinks of the water that I give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him will be a well of water springing up in him to everlasting life." [This spring must be witnessed within your inner being, continual bubblings-up of the life of God.]
27 Do not labor for food that perishes, but [instead labor] for the food that endures to everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give to you; for God the Father has authorized and certified him with his seal." [To labor is to work hard. What is the hard work you must do that endure to everlasting life?—to daily, persistently and patiently expose yourself to hearing Christ speak his commands and teachings to you, by sitting, waiting on God, listening, watching, hearing, believing, and obeying; that is the one thing needed and the only works which survive the fire that everyone must pass through. This is part of the cross that you must daily bear, denying your own will, and obeying the will of God instead.]
|Romans 6:22 |
22 But now being made free from sin, and having become slaves to God, you have the fruit [reward] of holiness, and at the end, everlasting life.9 [To be a slave to God does not mean you go to Bible College or Seminary; that would be totally counter productive. To be a slave to God is to follow the Spirit's continual guidance and commands that you hear and see — but to your supreme joy of sharing in his works of love. Every word and every action is virtuous and perfect because God prompts them; you are doing his will on earth as it is done in heaven by the angels, as you remain in whatever is your current, honest occupation. See this verse's footnote for a more detailed explanation.]
