John 3:15(KJV) That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life
Eternal life is the life inherent in God. It is the very life of God, the very nature and essence of God. God gives this life to those who believe in [and receive] Christ Jesus. It is deposited in our spirits the moment we accept Jesus. We do not have to wait until we get to heaven before we begin to experience [the realities of] eternal life. No! Rather, we have it here and now and God expects us to allow this life to find expression in and through us, so much that whatever we do or touch receives life (Jn1:4).
John 17:3 says, ”And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent”. Knowledge and understanding of who we are and whose we are will enable the believer to live a victorious life. If this life is already deposited in our spirit then we must consciously walk in the knowledge of this life for it to profit us. The more of God’s word we put in our spirit and the more we interphase with God in prayers, the more we allow this life to permeate our souls and bodies, flow out easily and swallow up all that doesn’t emanate from God (see John 7:38).
Go into today knowing that you have eternal life and this life gives life to everything around you.
Prayer: Ask the Lord to grant you the grace to live in the consciousness of this life daily so that it would find expression.
