And this is eternal life: to have knowledge of you, the only true God, and of him whom you have sent, even Jesus Christ. (John 17:3 BBE)
God is also interested in the quality of your life! Are you worried, stressed, despairing, feeling guilty, anger or hatred? These are the symptoms of dying life. Jesus‘ promise of eternal life isn't just about the future, isn't just about living forever. It means that we can live with a new quality of life, now, by having relationship with God through Jesus Christ. This relationship means that we can receive and give genuine love, joy, peace, patience and kindness.
"For in the past we were foolish, hard in heart, turned from the true way, servants of evil desires and pleasures, living in bad feeling and envy, hated and hating one another. But when the mercy of God our Saviour, and his love to man was seen, not by works of righteousness which we did ourselves, but in the measure of his mercy, he gave us salvation, through the washing of the new birth and the giving of new life in the Holy Spirit, which he gave us freely through Jesus Christ our Saviour" (Titus 3:3-6 BBE)
