That You May Know

1 John 5:13 NIV: I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

Within a single statement, John clarifies to us his purpose for writing his letter-"that you may know." I recently asked a woman if she was going to heaven. She replied, "I hope so." I asked her how she could go on in such uncertainty regarding her eternal life. She wasn´t sure what to say, but then asked me if I was going to heaven. I simply said, "Yes." She asked, "How do you know?" God wants us to know that we have eternal life. He has told us so in His Word. For those who believe in the name of the Son of God, there is no reason to walk in uncertainty any longer.
