The Father has life in himself, and he has granted that same life-giving power to his Son - Jesus Christ
Everyone has different meanings, definitions, and interpretations of the word life. For someone, it's enjoying it as much as possible. For others, it might be living their life to its fulness with comfort, money, and power. We believe birth and death are the two ends of our life. But our spiritual world gives different interpretations about life and death.
Life in the spiritual context means spending our life eternally with the creator of our soul. The birth of the spiritual life begins when our souls finds it connection with the creator God. The journey of the spiritual life continues into eternity and the connection established on earth continues to eternity. On the other hand, spiritual death is a punishment given to our soul to forcefully stay away from the presence of God. Not because God wanted to put our soul away but because our soul never found its connection with God. God created our soul. The soul once born in this world never dies. Only the physical body dies but our soul continues to exist forever into eternity either in the presence of God or away from His presence. God wants to give life to our souls by having fellowship with us in heaven. So that we can be with Him forever and ever. This is called eternal life.
Knowing Eternal Life
Is it possible for us to know how eternal life is different from the current life we are leading? Bible does give a glimpse of eternal life. It is a place where there will be no sorrow, where there will be no hunger. There will be no more diseases. No more evil temptations. Jesus calls it as a place of rest. There will be no night because God will be among the people and His light will shine across the entire land. There will be rejoicing.
Above all these, we will have a beautiful association with the source of eternal life. He will define the true meaning of life.
The Source of Eternal Life
God is the source of spiritual life. Bible says The Father has life in himself, and he has granted that same life-giving power to his Son. Jesus holds the source of life that was delegated to Him by father God. He wants to offer to anyone willing to believe Him. Jesus said Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life.
Dear friend, Do you want to secure this eternal life for your soul? You might have secured many things for your physical life on earth. But what about your spiritual life. Jesus is willing to offer you eternal life today. It does not matter what happened in your past. Today is your day. Are you ready to accept Jesus Christ? The pain you carry will go away very soon. Jesus wants to fill your life with peace and joy. Let's pray.
Dear Jesus, I want to receive eternal life. Please, I ask for forgiveness for my past mistakes. Please forgive me. I humble my heart and come before your presence. Jesus hears my prayer and heals my life. My soul needs your healing touch. I want to drink the living water that flows from your throne of grace and mercy. Jesus, change my life. Let me live a life for you. I want to be with you in eternity when my journey on life ends. Thank you for hearing my prayer. I believe you have already forgiven my past mistake. Be with me forever and guide me. Be my master. In Jesus's precious name, I pray. Amen.
