By Don Ruhl

He who searches the Scriptures to find life, but does not go to the Son for that life, does not understand the message of the Scriptures, as Jesus declared,

“You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life” (John 5.39–40). 

Friends, go to Jesus. He gives you life. Without Him, we have nothing, but death. However, we do not make this search without the Scriptures, rather the Scriptures lead us on the journey.


  • Do you know of people who appear to know what the Bible says, but do not live as Jesus taught?
  • Are you one of those people?
