Seven Promises of Jesus to Christian Believers

The seven promises of Jesus to His followers

1. Life to the fullest

John 10:10
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came so that they would have life and have it abundantly.

Jesus offers life, but you have to believe and receive it. If we abide in Him, we will bear much fruit (John 15). The life Jesus promise happens immediately that moment we make him the LORD of our life.

However, the promise of “life to the fullest” has nothing to do with becoming rich or not having to experience problems — but having joy and peace. In this world, we will have tribulation.

→ How apostle Paul overcame depression.

2. Acceptance

John 6:37
“All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.”

Charles Spurgeon referred to this as one of his favorite verses. Christ assures us that He will never reject us. If we come to him, we will find him waiting with open arms. (Jeremiah 29:12)

Christ’s invitation extends to everyone, and he accepts all those who follow him. God does not look at your past but sees you as a “new creation” through Christ Jesus. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

→ Are you a true Christian?

3. Reward

Mark 10:29–31
“Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age… But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”

Often, following Jesus requires sacrifice. Those who serve God will receive rewards in heaven: “Crown of Glory” (1 Peter 5:4); “Crown of Righteousness” (2 Timothy 4:8); “Crown of Life.” (James 1:12)

On earth, God repays man according to what his deeds deserve (Romans 2:6). We reap what we sow (Galatians 6:7-9), and if we use our talent for God’s glory, He will reward us.

→ Choosing God over adultery.

4. Revelation

John 14:21
“Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. My Father will love the one who loves me, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”

The secret things belong to God (Deuteronomy 29:29), but through faith in Christ, He sends the Holy Spirit, who reveals mysteries, wisdom, and inspiration.

Jesus manifests himself to those who obey His words and blessed [are] the pure in heart: for they shall see God. (Matthew 5:8)

→ Powerful declarations in Jesus’ name.

5. Friendship

John 15:14–15
“You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”

There are seasons of friendship because friends come and go. Worse, people will always fail us because man’s nature is sinful. (Romans 5:12)

Christ reconciled us with God. He is not only our savior but what a friend we have in Jesus.

→ Hopeless case of addiction.

6. Real Joy and True Peace

John 15:9–11
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.”

There is a joy when we obey and keep God’s commands; we remain in His love (John 15:9). Jesus did not promise fame, wealth, and riches—but joy, peace, and understanding.

7. Test of Faith

Matthew 16:24–25
“Then Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.’

God may allow financial problemstragedy, even cancer, or a debilitating condition to test our faith. In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. (2 Timothy 3:12)

All God’s children undergo “trials of faith” because the Lord disciplines whom He loves, and He scourges every son whom He receives. (Hebrews 12:6)

Nothing can separate us from the love of JESUS CHRIST, OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. AMEN
