Share the Truth in Love

Share this conversation starter with your LDS friend:

Are you tired? Does eternal life seem so far out of reach? No matter how hard you try, you still make mistakes. How will you ever know if you’ll be enough?

John 6:47 says, “Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.” Jesus didn’t say, “the one who believes and does their very best,” “the one who believes that I can help them,” or “the one who keeps the commandments.” Jesus simply describes the inheritors of eternal life as those who believe in him. That’s it. 

Everyone who takes Jesus at his word and trusts that he gave his life as a ransom for them has eternal life RIGHT NOW! There are no further requirements. Rest in his promise that we can live in God’s presence right now and for all eternity.
