What is Eternal Life?

You may have read in a previous post  that my husband, Bobby, recently went home to be with the Lord. I am a firm believer in Jesus Christ. However, I often find myself having to be reminded of His promises of eternal life. I need to be reminded that I will be reunited with my husband. I desire that the promise of eternal life be rooted and grounded in me; that it becomes an intrinsic part of my being.
I invite you to join with me as we read and meditate on Scriptures which promise eternal life. Let us, together, allow the promise of eternal life to be planted in our spirits and embedded in our souls. May the Lord Jesus Christ give us spiritual wisdom and revelation in our knowledge of Him. . . so that we may know what is the hope of his calling. (Ephesians 1:17-18)

What is Eternal Life?

On different occasions, the Gospels speak of individuals who asked Jesus, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” (Matthew 19:16, Mark 10:17, Luke 18:18, Luke 10:25). Jesus’ answer was wisely tailored to the circumstances of each one of the individuals. However, the bottom line of His response was that, to inherit eternal life, one must be spiritually transformed by faith in Him. The quintessential answer to the question, “what is eternal life?” is:

“This is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and him whom you sent, Jesus Christ.” (John 17:3)
