Eternal Life Is Happening Now
If you have received Jesus eternal life is in you NOW. It is to be lived and enjoyed right now and not just after death.
1 John 5:11-12: And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
Galatians 2:20: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Romans 6:11: Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Knowing that you have eternal life in you will make a wonderful difference in the way you live. Doubting or ignoring the fact that it is in you will limit the difference it will make in the way you live.
2 Kings 25:30: And his allowance was a continual allowance given him of the king, a daily rate for every day, all the days of his life.
The acts of breathing which I performed yesterday will not keep me alive today; I must continue to breath afresh every moment, or animal life ceases. In like manner yesterday*s grace and spiritual strength must be renewed, and the Holy Spirit must continue to breathe on my soul from moment to moment in order to my enjoying the consolations, and to my working the works of God. (Today)
Take your spiritual pulse, temperature and blood-pressure, keep breathing, take some nourishment, flex your muscles and get going.
