Eternal Life

Text: “And this is the promise that he made to us — eternal life.” 1 John 2:24 (ESV)

God’s promise to those who abide in Him is eternal life. The world, and all that is in it, will one day pass away but those who abide in Him will live forever and reign with Him. And to abide in Him is to have our lives permanently rooted in Him after receiving Him as our Saviour.

The proof of abiding in Christ is reflected in how we walk in Him, and do His word. He has called us to forsake the world, and the things of this world, and follow His will. By this we may know that we are in Him: whoever says he abides in Him ought to walk in the same way in which He walked (1 John 2:5-6).

Until the world passes away, we have to make a conscious effort to remain rooted in Christ so that we may have confidence at his second coming, and lay hold on eternal life which He promised us.

LEARN and APPLY: Those who abide in Christ keep his commandments. His commandments are to love Him and to love our neighbour as ourselves. If we love Him, we will walk as He did and not yield to the desires of the flesh.

Pray: Thank You Lord for saving us from our sins. May we remain rooted in You. May our lives please You, as we lay hold on the eternal life you promised us. In Jesus name, amen.
