What Jesus Says about Eternal Life

April 23, 2018

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1

Life, as we know it, is always lived with death and judgment before us. But Jesus speaks here about eternal life, which is life with death and judgment behind us!

So what happens to a believer when your heart stops beating, and your lungs stop breathing, and your brain stops sending signals to the rest of your body? To be away from the body is to be at home with the Lord. Which is better by far! (2 Cor. 5:8).

In a world where, every day, thousands of people are passing from life to death, Jesus has come so that, through faith in him, we may pass from death to life!

When you hear this good news don’t you feel motivated to tell others? “I’ve got to tell people what life is! I woke up today thinking that death and judgment were ahead of me, but I will go to bed tonight knowing that death and judgment are behind me and eternal life is ahead of me because of Jesus Christ.”

Jesus says, “Whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life!” (John 5:24).

Do you believe what Jesus is saying here? Who can you share this with today?
