LIFE ETERNAL

LIFE ETERNAL

What is life eternal? In our Lord’s Prayer (John 17:3), the answer is very simply put, “And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.”
In the Greek text the article “the” appears before “life eternal”. The meaning of the whole passage (when we take verses 2 and 3 together) is “And this is the life eternal which He has to give, that they whom You have given Him may know You.”
What we have in the passage is Christ own explanation of what eternal life is, and that it is given to the objects of His Father’s love and choice. By Christ’s explanation we are to know that those of the Father’s choice and gift to Christ alone have the inward and unfailing possession of this life in time and for eternity.
Our Lord, giving His own interpretation of what eternal life is, eliminates at least four evil inventions of men. First, heaven is no visionary, imaginary thing. Heaven is not a place far away. You may be in heaven before the clock ticks again it is so near. This very day, before the sun goes down some reading this article may see the realities of heaven or hell.
Second, eternal life is not a mere deliverance at death from pain and suffering. If at this instant you were to leave your body where would your soul be? You may know very quickly. Where does it delight to be now? Your delight prophesies your destiny. What you have chosen here shall be your portion hereafter. If you loved sin, you shall be steeped up in it, and it shall burn around you. But if your delights have been with your God, you shall dwell with Him.
Third, eternal life is not gotten by ceremonies and absolving priests (Roman Catholic or Baptist). Life in Christ is gained by realizing yourself to be a sinner and that “Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners” (I Timothy 1:15). You may say I have no strength, “While we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for us” (Romans 5:6). I am lost, “the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10).
Fourth, eternal life is not purchased by deathbed repentance; neither priest nor preacher has life to give. If I can see my sin as an offense against Jesus Christ and hate myself because I have wounded Him, then I have true brokenness of heart. To hate sin because it caused the brow of Christ to be girt with the thorn crown; and the face of Christ to be dishonored with spittle; and the hands of Christ to be pierced with the nails—this is repentance.
Life Eternal is the Son of God’s gift to those the Father gave Him.
