Eternal life means to know and experience the only true God.
Eternal life means to know and experience you as the only true God, and to know and experience Jesus Christ, as the Son whom you have sent.
All the glory, praises and honor be to the Holy Father in Jesus’ precious name !
The subject verse from the gospel of John, tells us what the eternal life means in the very words of our Lord Jesus Christ. Here, the Lord is seen praying to the Holy Father. The prayer emphasizing that we know and experience the true God and His Son who is sent into this world. Certainly, the Bible says that life and death are to the eternity. The eternal life is with God in His holy kingdom, while the eternal death is condemnation to the hell.
Know & Experience the Living God
The eternal life is just not a mere progression from the earthly life to the heavenly one. But it is to know and experience the true Living God. The God who loved us so much that He gave us His only begotten Son. And also, we are to know the Son of God and the sacrifice that he has made on our behalf. The sacrifice of animals or birds does not fully cleanse any person off his sins. Therefore, the God most holy came down and offered himself once for all. Through His Son’s sacrifice on the Calvary cross, the Almighty God, gave us His holy kingdom.
Washed in the blood of Christ
Now the blood of Lord Jesus Christ has cleansed our sins. Therefore, we are made righteous in the sight of the Holy Father. God chose to see the blood of Jesus and forgive us of our sins and transgressions. And by the righteousness of Lord Jesus that is bestowed upon us, we also received the heirship to the holy kingdom. Therefore, let us bless the Almighty God who has given us the eternal life through His only begotten Son. In Jesus precious name. Amen!
