1 John 5:12 NLT
Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God's Son does not have life.
When most think of life they think of our worldly existence. We are born of our earthly mother and live out a life of an unknown number of years. Unknown because we are not born with an expiration date stamped on us somewhere.
We work hard at this life and do all we can to extend our life here. We take vitamins and eat as healthy as we can. Of course the definition of healthy eating changes from time to time so we try to keep up with the current thoughts. We even join exercise clubs to strengthen our bodies and hearts.
But life on this earth ends after x years no matter how many synthetic parts replace our worn out ones. We strive to stay here on earth as long as we can no matter the cost.
This life here is only temporary. It is a brief stay in the big picture. God knew us before the beginning of time. Before we were in our mother's womb. And our existence transcends life here continuing on forever.
As believers in Jesus, the son of God, we have life eternal with Him. We will spend the rest of our life in Heaven with all believers that have left their human life before us.
Thank you Jesus for saving me from this life. For forgiving my sins past, present., and forever. Thank you for your mercy and your grace. Thank you for freeing me of all bondage and making a place for me to spend eternity with You.
