This is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 1 Jn 5:11
When you look at the expanse of the night sky decorated with the moon and the stars, you’ll realize how small you really are compared to the whole world and to the universe. Earth is but a tiny planet, and the Milky Way is but one of thousands of galaxies across outer space. Can you even begin to imagine that kind of eternity?
God’s love is like the universe. It is so wide and so deep that no height nor depth of the tallest mountain or the deepest seabed can ever measure it. He turned His love into an eternal gift for us- the life of His Son Jesus Christ. When we come to know and truly believe in Him, we will find out that His eternal life is one of tranquility and calm.
Following Jesus everyday may be hard, but not grievous. As the Bible says, “his burden is light.” He will not suffer us to face unbearable trials and testings alone. He will always provide a way for us to escape. His gift of eternal life will fill us with a godly love that is inherent only in God. His gift of eternal life already has victory over death. And what a blessed assurance it is to someday see our Lord and Savior face to face.
Let it be our prayer to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ that we may be able to experience the joy of living our lives jointly with Him.
