There are many questions than real answers to the question; when does eternal life begin. In the book of Genesis it began as a gift from God when God created man and woman.
The thought of eternal life means everlasting, continuous, without end; It also insinuates there was a life lived, before eternal life was received, which means a death occurred.
So;In this death was eternal life received?
To begin to understand if in this death was eternal life received, one must refer to the giver of life; God. When you were born, this first life that was given to you is a gift from God, which establishes his Sovereign Reign; for God is Everlasting Life. This free life God gives comes freely with choice stipulations. Your choices determines when eternal life began.
Whom will you Serve?
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Some choose to live a lifetime and die without eternal life into eternal damnation; while others choose to live a lifetime; die in that lifetime, to live unto eternal life.
In this Life you must Die in order to Live
He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
Gods gift of eternal life is Jesus Christ. This free gift of Jesus Christ was with God in the beginning and will be to the end. God is Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end the author and finisher of our faith.
Jesus is our hope for Eternal Life
Since Jesus is our hope for Eternal Life; what do I do to keep it? When you fall in love you become infatuated with not only the emotional feeling of the heart; but the person, because they form a bond that you mutually share. So much so that you protect it with all your heart. No matter what; because you are in love with that person; You would do whatever it takes not to break that bond relationship or allow anything to interfere with it.
This is the same love relationship with Jesus Christ, because of the eternal life you have received from him. Doing what it takes to enhance the relationship by wanting to know everything about him, how he lived, how he thought, how he healed the sick, how he raised the dead, how he forgave, how he longsuffered, how he loves, how he intercedes to the Father for us, how he wept, how he prayed, how he fasted, how he supply our every need, how he walked in this life, how he rebuked, how he will never leave nor forsake us, how he is a comforter, how he will fight all our battles; all this for love.
Even in love with Jesus; doing all that, while acknowledging our Father and obeying his word, thanking him for the Love for all he has done and appreciation for his son Jesus.
There is one set way to serve God, by the example set by Jesus. God made us all unique, for the purpose to serve and please him, to reach others with his word through us.
You are Someone Glorious by God.
That’s what so wonderful about God; he has no respect for person and I welcome you to share on these website pages your comments to share with others.
What you know about God, giving a fresh word full of love, could very well be what God has planned for you to say; no matter how small or insignificant.
Remember Jesus said:
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE, PLEASE LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW.
Before leaving I have two appeals:
Firstly; It is my desire for those who are not saved, to be saved. That is the mission of this ministry; that you know Jesus. If you have not received Jesus in your life it is my desire that you know Jesus and ask him to come into your life, pray and seek a Church that will worship, support your faith and increase by knowledge in Jesus Christ. This is the only chance we have to live a life, in this life, that is pleasing to God. Live it to the utmost with Jesus Christ by your side, waste not another moment if you have not received him as your personal Savior.
Secondly; This is a ministry to advance the Kingdom of God by reaching out to those by word and deed, who do not know the Kingdom of God is at hand.
Your charitable contribution would be sharing this message for others to hear.
