HOW ETERNAL LIFE IS RECEIVED (2)

“And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand” – John 10:28-29

LIGHT FOR NOW: Eternal life which is the very life of God is yours now and always.

From John 3:16-18 where John says “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God”. Believing therefore is how everlasting life is received. Believing in Christ is the vehicle to eternal life. In John 6:47, Jesus has this to say “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life”. So believing in Jesus is how everlasting life is received. Jesus in John 5:24-26 will also have this to say “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death to life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the son of God: and they that hear shall live. For hath the father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the son to have life in himself”. Again, verse 24 of John 5 shows us that it is by believing that a man receives eternal life.

Apostle John in chapter 5:11-13 of his first epistle says “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his son. He that hath the son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” Again, believing on the Son of God is how everlasting life is received. So, by faith in Christ, everlasting life is ours today not tomorrow. So, believers have eternal life. Eternal life is a possession; eternal life is your possession. Eternal life which is life that comes from God or absolute life or complete life or life that cannot be changed is the believers’ reality today. The very life of God flows through your veins. You have a life higher than human life; it is called eternal life. Eternal life is the higher life. Glory!!

INSTRUCTION: Acknowledge the word.

CONFESSION: I declare that eternal life is my nature; eternal life flows through my beings.

QUOTE: The believers’ higher life is in eternal life.
