1 John 5:11-13 (NET) And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. The one who has the Son has this eternal life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have this eternal life.

I have written these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

When Jide visited Phillip’s home for the first time, after he left, it was evident that someone with eternal life had visited. Phillip’s mother was sick with an incurable illness and had been discharged from the hospital because the doctors could not heal her. But after Jide stayed in Phillips’s house for some days, miraculously, his mother started becoming better until she became completely healed. Also, Phillip had a poultry farm with many layers that he had been feeding for months and they refused to lay eggs, the vet had advised him that the chickens were probably terrified by the loud barks of the dogs in the compound and that he could change their location and change their feed. But after the third day Jide slept in Phillip’s house, all the birds started laying eggs, and many were laying more than one egg per day. This was a marvel. 

Jide was a carrier of eternal life, and he was aware of this. Everywhere he went, life and peace followed him because he understood the economy and dynamics of the life that he carried. 

What is Eternal life? Eternal life is the God kind of life. It is the kind and quality of life that can only be found in God (the source and giver of all life). One of the awesome privileges we have as believers in the Son of God is that we are joined to Him. We dwell in Him and He in us, thus we also have His eternal life. 

One of the major reasons Apostle John wrote the epistle of 1st John to the saints was because he wanted them to know that they have eternal life (see 1 John 5:13). If a believer is unaware of the presence and potency of the eternal life he has, he may not walk in it and enjoy its benefits. 

Next time, we shall examine the dynamics of this eternal life which we possess and how to appropriate it. 

Go into today knowing that if you abide in Christ, and He abides in you (through the Holy Spirit and His word), you share in His eternal life, and the power of corruption has been suspended within you. Read John 10:10, 2 Peter 1:4

Prayer: Lord, help me remember that I have eternal life, and teach me to appropriate the power and benefits of this life.
