What does Eternal Life mean ? Does it really mean that one will live forever,if he or she is saved? Does God grants eternal life to all who believe on Him,through Jesus Christ?You might ask,how does one obtain eternal life by just believing in Christ ? Yes it is that simple,although some say one must follow a five step plan,the Bible does not teach such a doctrine..
It is by the grace of God,that We become sons of God.For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.John 3:16 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall (can) never perish, neither shall (can) any man pluck them out of my hand.My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.(John 10:28-30) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.(2 Cor 5:17) When one becomes “a new creature”The old stuff you once did,becomes foreign.The Lord will start You on a new path.Yes,the old You is now gone,and You want to please the Lord. For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.(Phil 3:20-21) No one, nor anything, can take away Your salvation.It is a gift from God.(Eph 2:8-9).Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.(James 1:17) Salvation is a gift from God,and We know God will not change,or take way salvation.To do so would make God a liar,and We know God dosen’t lie. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath (has) given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath(has) the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.(1 John 5:10-13) In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, (Eph. 1:13) And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. (Eph. 4:30) The Holy Spirit has sealed Your soul,once You received the gift of salvation.nothing can break that seal. Notice We are sealed until the day the Lord returns.Eternal life begins the day You are saved by the grace of God,through faith in Jesus Christ.By simply calling on the name of the Lord You can be saved.We who have believed,and called upon His name have eternal life.
