NOTE.-If men do not die, why should Christ die to save them from death? And what need of the resurrection and the second advent?
5. What does He say He gives to those who follow Him?
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand.” John 10:27,28.
6. Upon what is the possession of this life conditioned?
“Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, ye have no life in you.” John 6:53.
8. Who only have this life?
“He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” Verse 12. “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.” John 5:24.
9. What is Christ therefore fittingly called?
“When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory.” Col. 3:4.
THERE Is a fountain filled with blood,
Drawn from Immanuel’s veins;
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains.
The dying thief rejoiced to see
That fountain in his day;
And there may I, though vile as he,
Wash all my sins away.
E’er since by faith I saw the stream
Thy flowing wounds supply,
Redeeming love has been my theme,
And shall be till I die.
Lord, I believe Thou hast prepared,
Unworthy though I be,
For me a blood-bought, free reward-
Eternal life for me.
There in a nobler, sweeter song,
I’ll sing Thy power to save,
When this poor lisping, stam’ring tongue
Is ransomed from the grave.
