“Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice29 and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned. (John 5:28-29)
Jesus clearly said that those who do evil will be punished, and those who do good will be rewarded with eternal life. But you might ask: how do we do good? or what are God’s standards good and bad?
Jesus gave the answer to this question back in verse 24:
“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” (John 5:24)
