And this is the record, that God hath 
given to us eternal life, and this life is in 
his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; 
and he that hath not the Son of God hath 
not life (1 John 5:11-12).

Eternal life is the nature of God, and the Bible 
says this life is in Christ Jesus. This is the life 
Jesus referred to when He said,  “For as the Father hath 
life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have 
life in himself ” (John 5:26). Jesus had that life, which 
He received from the Father. It’s translated “eternal 
life” in English because of the limitation of the English 
language; this is the “God-life” or “the God-kind of 
There’s the animal life; there’s the plant life; there’s 
the human life, and then there’s the God-life: the life 
of Deity. Anyone who has the Son of God, has this 
life, and anyone who doesn’t have the Son of God 
doesn’t have eternal life. That’s what we read in our 
opening scripture. 
It doesn’t matter that someone is your sibling, your 
father, mother, friend, co-worker or classmate; if they 
don’t have the Son of God, they don’t have eternal 
life, and that’s serious trouble. It means they’re subject 
to the darkness and depravities of this world; they’re 
under the dominion of spiritual death. It’s the reason 
we preach, and it’s the reason you must do everything 
possible to ensure your loved ones receive eternal life 
which is in Christ Jesus.   
The Bible says, “…the gift of God is eternal life...” 
(Romans 6:23); that gift is only available in Jesus Christ. 
He came that we may have life to the full (John 10:10 
AMP). The vibrant, glorious, transcendent life of God 
in its fullness is what Jesus brought; it’s no ordinary life; 
and if you believe in Him, that’s what you’ve received 
into your spirit. You don’t have to “feel” it in your body 
first to be conscious that you have eternal life; it’s in 
your spirit. 
Your consciousness of your divine nature and 
origin is so important. Recall the words of the Apostle 
John:  “These things have I written unto you that 
believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may 
know that ye have eternal life”  (1 John 5:13).
I’m indestructible. Greater is He that’s in me than 
he that’s in the world. The life in me is incorruptible 
and indestructible, making me invincible. My life 
is for the glory of God; I’m walking in preordained 
pathways, fulfilling God’s purpose for my life, in 
Jesus’ Name. Amen. 
2 Peter 1:3-4; 1 John 5:11-12
