“This is the record that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath…” (1 John 5:11-12)



Jesus Christ is LIFE and LIGHT, and when He is enthroned in us, we have both life and light. Hence it is essential, imperative that we seek not the effect, but the Cause. “He that hath the Son hath…” the next word in the verse is “life,” and this is gloriously true, but we omitted the word for one reason, to emphasize the fact that “HE THAT HATH THE SON HATH” - hath all that is needed, life, light, peace, victory. All that is in the Son, as He dwells supreme in us, is ours. “For all things are yours; whether Paul or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; and ye are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.” (1 Cor. 3:21-23)


What’s in the Son? “In Him all fullness is pleased to dwell.” Hence, “He that hath the Son hath!” “And the glory which Thou gavest Me, I have given them; that they may be one, even as We are one.” (John 17:22)



If you would be holy, don’t try in yourself to become holy through many pious experiences, just seek to have the Son dwell within in fullest expression, and holiness will be the effect, of which He is the Cause. When He is supreme within, we will be holy, for He is holy; we will be spiritual, for He is spiritual. All this will not be some self-arrived-at state wherein self will have to keep up its maintenance, and of course, utterly fail. When He rules and reigns within, we are kept by HIS power. “Kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” (1 Pet. 1:5)


We need not seek immortality, when we have the Son, He is our Life, and He hath “abolished death, and hath brought life and incorruption to light through the gospel.” (2 Tim. 1:10) We set not our affection on the earth, but on HIM, for “our life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, our life, shall appear, then shall we also appear with Him in glory.” (Col. 3:3-4)
