As we are surrounded by darkness, sickness, and death on every hand, I want to remind us that we have someone greater, who lives within us who defeated them all… Our Lord Jesus Christ! When Jesus said in John 3:16, “For God soooo loved the world that He gave us His Only Begotten Son, so that all who believe into His Son will never perish but will have Eternal Life,” (paraphrased) He meant it!
This Eternal Life or Everlasting Life, He speaks of, is not a place where we will go to but a PERSON!
All who believe in and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ has The Eternal Life living inside them, right now!
- His Life has no beginning and no end.
- His Life can never die or be eradicated.
- His Life can never lose its power.
- His Life can never be lost.
- His Life can never be taken away from us.
- His Life can never be overcome by darkness, sickness, or disease.
- His Life can never and will never change; it remains constant forever.
Here are a few scriptures pointing to the person of Jesus Christ as our Eternal Life:
John 5:39 – Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have Eternal Life: and they are they which testify of ME.
John 10:28 – And I give unto them Eternal Life, and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
I John 1:2 – For the Life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and was shown to you that Eternal Life, which was with the Father and was manifested unto us.
I John 2:25 – And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even Eternal Life.
So, rest my brothers and sisters in The Eternal Life who came down from the corridors of heaven to live within us, sickness, disease, nor death have power over us. Jesus promised… WHERE I AM, THERE YOU WILL BE WITH ME TOO! We will NEVER DIE, as Billy Graham stated, “We will only be changing our addresses.”
