“This is He who came by water and blood — Jesus Christ; not only by water — but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth…. He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son. And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life.” 1 John 5:6, 10-12

Jesus came with water and blood; not with water alone, to sanctify us — but also with His blood, to make atonement for our sins. We should, therefore, first of all, penitently seek and obtain remission of sins in His blood, that we may obtain the water of life, the Holy Spirit, for our inward purification. And His Holy Spirit will bear witness within us, that the gospel is the truth, and that God will fulfill His word by giving us everlasting life as He has promised.

We have three witnesses of this in Heaven and three on earth. And if we believe in Christ, we have this true testimony in ourselves and may therefore assuredly know, that having the Son of God, we have eternal life –for He is, according to verse 20, “life eternal.”

Consequently, being in Him, we are already entered into everlasting life. All the blessings included in eternal life are in Jesus.
Consequently, to possess Jesus is to possess eternal life. Have I Christ formed in my heart? If so, I have eternal life abiding in me.
