Paul Tillich once wrote,

Faith consists in being vitally concerned with that ultimate reality to which I gave the symbolical name of God. Whoever reflects earnestly on the meaning of life is on the verge of an act of faith.

Jesus said,

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

Anyone thinking about the meaning of life must determine there is more to it than this Whosoeverphysical existence. There has to be a greater more grand scheme to life than what we see here on our “dog eat dog” world. If this is all there is to life, why should we govern society? Why should we endeavor to improve our world? Why would man have any sense of morality, decency, honesty or philanthropy? The answer is because there is more and we work in life for what is greater than ourselves. We have a natural desire to acknowledge God. Whosoever means everyone has the same available to them and of everyone, whomever chooses to believe receives the gift.

Whosoever believes in Jesus Christ will have eternal life. Be concerned about the things of God. When we develop sensitivity toward God’s will, when we stretch out our faith toward His Son, when we rest in and rely on Jesus, we take a step closer to Heaven. We step into a new realm of existence. We can become the children of God.

Whosoever believes in Jesus will never die (John 11:26). Jesus is the living water from which we drink eternal life (John 4:10, 14). Jesus is the bread of life (John 6:35). Jesus stressed faith in Him and His Father throughout His ministry. Whosoever believes can be free from the strangle hold of the world, free from the evil that creates fear and robs us of power. Whosoever comes to Jesus with eternal questions walks away with eternal answers. Focus your faith on Jesus.
