This is Eternal Life!
“Now this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.” John 17:3
Humanity has been seeking numerous ways to exist on earth, especially with the intense use of technology to fabricate what seems impossible. Though so many of their selfish intentions are just wasteful attempts, one attempts to seek eternal life on earth. If possible, humankind would have designed a different system to make them live continuously without death.
Undoubtedly, such desire or effort towards an alternative standard of God is improper, and it is subjected to failure. It is essential to be mindful of our rightful position, the place where God intends for us. People who fail to realize that eternal life isn’t on earth will keep chasing the shadow will never catch life’s real things because they will fade away.
Matthew 24:35 says, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”
Jesus made us understand that eternal life is light and freedom found in God through the only-begotten Son. Eternal life isn’t what we neither see with our eyes nor understand by the knowledge of this world; we receive it as a gift from God through revelation. And people who have eternal life have a different thinking pattern; their ways and attitude are very exclusive. They sleep and wake up into a new life in Christ daily.
Do you have eternal life? Are you sure you will live even when you close your eyes to this sinful world? Jesus is the only means to eternal life; ensure you genuinely accept and know Jesus, and He will give you eternal life. John 10:28 says, “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them out of My hand.”
1. Lord, help me to know you as the only God who can give eternal life.
2. Psalm 31:5 — O God of truth, into your hand, I commit my life, redeemed me in Christ Jesus.
