What does 1 John 5:13 mean when it says, "that you may know that you have eternal life"? Can I truly claim this promise of eternal life? We are not saved by our own works; we find victory in our Saviour, Jesus Christ. When it is in the heart to obey God, Jesus accepts this disposition and makes up for the deficiency. The reality is the righteousness you receive is not your own, because Someone else went through the torment for you. He wants you to receive His righteousness so that you may know you have eternal life.
