Eternal Forever Life

shuttle

 

Often we get so focused on our daily stuff that we forget that one of the major benefits of being a Christian is that we have eternal life. Starting when you were born-again, you have everlasting life. That means for infinity and beyond.

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23 NASB).

This is a free gift of God’s amazing grace. This is spiritual life. This is “aiōnios zōē.” This is the life of Jesus. “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life [zoe]” (John 14:6 NKJV). This is the life of God in us and we have this gift forever.

Some days it seems that we get bogged down in minutia and can’t see this big picture. But Paul said it well when he said, “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me” (Galatians 2:20 NASB).
