We have been told about eternity and how it is coming around the bend. Many religions foretell this coming dispensation showing its start after you are dead. Many things are promised in that distant future that have to wait till you die. But the bible teaches that eternal life starts today. The day you are born again, the life of God quickens you and eternal life starts to take its effect in you. God has in Christ given the ability to start a new life in you that will last for ever.
Bear in mind the fact that eternity has already started. Live life today fully aware that you are having an eternal impact with all that you do. Your faith, prayer, giving, worship, service and all your spiritual actions have eternal implications. You are an eternal being given eternal life in the Lord and practicing here today some of what you will be doing for eternity. You have eternal life today.
SCRIPTURE READING: 1 John 5:13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may [continue to] believe in the name of the Son of God.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Our Father, thank-you for the gift of eternal life. I believe my faith, prayer,worship and spiritual actions all have an eternal implication. As an eternal being, I choose to embrace this truth in Jesus’ name. Amen.
