“And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” –John 10:28
LIGHT FOR NOW: Eternal life is the greatest gift from God to man.
Eternal life is neither an event nor a feeling but it is a person and that person is Jesus Christ. The arrival of Jesus Christ into the world was the arrival of eternal life. This is the God-kind of life. Our text for today clearly lets us understand that eternal life is attainable only through the person of Jesus Christ. He is the source of eternal life. No one can give what he or she does not have. Jesus is the eternal life. John 1:4 says, “in him was life, and the life was the light of men”. You might wonder what kind of life is being referred to here. John chapter 3 verse 16 provides the answer. It reads, “For God so loved the loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life”. Eternal life is synonymous with everlasting life. From the context of these two scriptures, it is logical to say that in Jesus Christ is eternal life. Eternal life is the portion of those who believe in the name of Jesus.
Our text for today gives us an assurance; that as believers, no man will be able to pluck us out of the hands of Jesus Christ. In his hand, there is security, life and prosperity. It therefore means that eternal life preserves you from death because your life is hid in Christ Jesus (Colossians 3:3). Whatever cannot destroy Jesus cannot destroy you. When you operate in this realm, you will be constantly aware of your Believers’ Bill of Rights. Therefore, nothing and nobody has the right to look down or molest you. Eternal life has the capacity to make you whoever and whatever you want to be in life.
