In him was life; and the life was the light 
of men. And the light shineth in darkness; 
and the darkness comprehended it not 
(John 1:4-5).

The Bible says in John 10:10,  “The thief cometh 
not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: 
I am come that they might have life, and that they 
might have it more abundantly.”  The Lord Jesus died, 
was buried, and raised back to life by the glory of the 
Father. When God raised Him from the dead and 
showed Him openly, He called all to life. So, Jesus 
made eternal life possible. John said, “(For the life was 
manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and 
shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the 
Father, and was manifested unto us;)”  (1 John 1:2). 
In John 17:3, the Bible says,  “And this is life 
eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, 
and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”  Jesus is the 
embodiment of eternal life. He said in John 14:6, “…I 
am the way, the truth, and the life….” He said in John 
6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth 
on me hath everlasting life.” Everlasting life is eternal 
life. The one who believes in Jesus has it. 
The question is, do you believe in Jesus Christ? If 
you do, then you have eternal life. You’re not going 
to get it when you get to heaven; you have it now; it’s 
your present-hour possession. Also, if you’re not sure 
that you have eternal life, perhaps, you’ve not been 
born again, this is your moment! You can receive that 
life now by asking Jesus to come into your heart to be 
the Lord of your life. 
When you receive Christ, you receive eternal life; 
you receive the divine life and nature of God. You’re 
awakened to the fatherhood of God; you become one 
with Him. 
Something else that’s so sublime is that eternal life 
from Jesus Christ doesn’t come alone; it comes with 
“Righteousness.” The Bible says, “For with the heart 
man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth 
confession is made unto salvation”  (Romans  10:10).  
Romans 5:17 says,  “For if by one man’s offence 
death reigned by one; much more they which receive 
abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness 
shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.”  2 Corinthians 
5:21 says, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who 
knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness 
of God in him.”
Dear Father, I thank you for your life and nature 
which I received in Christ. I’m awakened to the 
realities of the Kingdom. Thank you for loving me and 
giving me your life and nature of righteousness, by 
which I live in your presence and walk in dominion, 
in Jesus’ Name. Amen. 
John 3:35-36; John 5:26; 1 John 5:11-12
