John 5:39-40 says, You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.
There are times when man is tricked by a religious spirit into thinking that if he daily reads his bible or memorizes scripture it will keep him eternal life with God. This is not true. Reading scripture to stay saved with God is a from of mental works to get to God. God will not bless that. God doesn’t want man to have a relationship with scripture. He wants man to have a relationship with Jesus. Nevertheless, if a man searches scripture to find Jesus, then eternal life Himself comes to his heart and takes him into a face to face encounter with God. Look for Jesus in every scripture, for every scripture speaks of Him. Dump the religious spirit today and find Jesus!
