“And this is the promise that He Himself made to us: eternal life.” 1 John 2:25 HCSB
Eternal life is often thought of as living forever after death. Eternal life is also an abiding relationship with the Father and the Son that begins the moment one places their trust in Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord. This relationship grows and deepens as the believer follows and obeys the truths found in God’s Word. God has given the believers a great promise of an everlasting relationship with Him that lasts forever.
Lord Jesus, what a wonderful and abundant life I have with You! Teach me how to live each day in a deepening relationship with You.
