Eternal life starts now! Eternal life is not so much about existence as it is about union with Christ, being wrapped up and hidden in Him. If you are “in Christ,” you have already entered into the many blessings of eternal life, which many unfortunately only expect to receive when they die. We become partakers of those blessings as we know Him, since He defines our life now, and as we believe his promises.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.” John 5:24
“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:1-2
“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.” 2 Peter 1:3-4
