CELEBRATE YOUR ETERNAL LIFE IN JESUS CHRIST!
These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God (1 John 5:13).
A Christian should take note of the fact that he has eternal life in Jesus Christ and constantly celebrate it to God’s glory in life. Eternal life is God’s life being manifested in the life of a Christian. A Christian obtained this life of God through Jesus Christ. The Bible says in the opening text that these things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to constantly celebrate his eternal life in Jesus Christ. Hence whenever a Christian learns to celebrate his eternal life in Jesus Christ, he absolutely receives the grace of divinity to live his life to the glory of God forever.
Jesus Christ emphasized this eternal life to His disciples when He said vividly in John 10:10 thus, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Of course, eternal life is “Zoe” in the Greek context which means the life of God in abundance, fullness and overflow. This is also referred to as God’s kind of life in the fullness of the Holy Spirit in life. Therefore, the eternal life of God can never be obtained by anywhere else except through Jesus Christ, the begotten Son of God in life. The life a Christian lives in Christ Jesus is absolutely the eternal life of God forever.
It is only in Jesus Christ this kind of life can be found. One can never find this kind of life in any other place, person or deity except in Jesus Christ only in life. That is the reason why the Bible states it vividly in 1 John 5:11, “And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.” In fact, the eternal life of God which is found in Jesus Christ is the everlasting testimony of a Christian in life. Without Jesus Christ, one can never have a taste of eternal life no matter your influence and affluence in life. Life without Jesus Christ is tasteless and bitter in life. Therefore, a life lived without Jesus Christ is absolutely a life devoid of God’s eternal life forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian should constantly celebrate his eternal life in Jesus Christ because it is his everlasting testimony which is worth celebrating in life forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life (1 John 5:12).
