You Either Have It Or You Don’t

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


1 John 5:12

“Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.”


Many believe that these are the words of John the Beloved. He had walked with Jesus and was one of Jesus’ inner circle of three. They were Peter, James, and John. He had a front-row seat in observing the life of Christ for three and a half years. He’d heard what Jesus had said, had watched the miracles Jesus had performed, and knew in his heart that Jesus was the Son of God. Here John said, “If you have the Son, you have life, and if you don’t have the Son of God, you don’t have life.” As far as John was concerned, when it came to the discussion of eternal life, there was only one way to have it. And he felt “You Either Have It Or You Don’t.”


This whole discussion comes down to one word: BELIEVE. Do you BELIEVE Jesus is the Son of God? Right now, the Christian population is approaching 2.5 billion people on planet earth. I recently heard from a reliable source that more people have chosen to follow Christ around the world from 1980 until today than ever followed Him from the day of Pentecost, which was the beginning of the Christian Church in the world, up until 1980. In other words, every day more people choose to BELIEVE that Jesus is the Son of God. Once again, John said, “You either have life, or you don’t have life.” The way to have life is to follow Jesus. So once again, “You Either Have It Or You Don’t!”


Dear Jesus,

I’m so blessed to know You as my Lord and Savior. Because I do, I know I have life eternal. Amen
