“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Eternal life is the life of God. It is the gift of God which is the remedy to the damage that sin has made on man; it is God’s remedy to all the consequences of sin. The Word tells us that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). It is the life which everybody who is born again has received in Christ. Eternal Life is the nature, life, being and substance of God; it is life as God has it, life as the Son of God Jesus Christ has it, it is life in the very essence of it as it is with divinity. It is the nature of everyone who has reposed faith in Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
Romans 3:23 tells us that all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, which means sin brought man below the standard of God for man, which is glory. That was the damage sin has done to the natural man. However, Romans 6:23 tells us that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ the Lord. This means when sin stepped into the human race, it brought in death, devastation, disorderliness and corruption. What then is God’s remedy for the wages of sin? Romans 6:23 tells us that it is the gift of God is eternal life. Eternal life is God’s remedy for the sin nature and all the consequences of sin. When you got born again, eternal life came into you and displaced the sin nature. The sin life or nature and eternal life cannot co-habit. Hallelujah!!! You can raise your hands and wave them to God and leap for joy for the free gift of eternal life in you in Christ.
The plague of sinnow has a cure ─ eternal life. If you are born again, you have eternal life (1 John 5:11-12). If only you knew what you have, you wouldn’t let sin lord it over you anymore than Pharaoh could lord it over Israel in Canaan land. You have passed from death to life. Hallelujah!!!Beloved, you are born after a new order – the God–kind. It’s the kind of life that is consistent with everything God is. You are God’s spiritual, biological child. You are more than a mere, natural man. You are God’s plenipotentiary. Eternal life has given you liberty from sin and all its consequences. Acknowledge who you are and show gratitude to God for all He has done for you.
My Solid Front (Confession):
In Jesus’ Name, I declare that I am God’s child. I am born again. I have eternal life; the nature of God, the being of God, the life of God. Today and forever, I walk in the light of eternal life that I have received in Christ Jesus. That life is working in me now to instruct and to educate me. The wages of sin is all gone, for I have received the gift of God – eternal life. Amen!!!
