eternal life

 

Before I truly accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, I was so afraid of getting sick and dying all the time. I was almost paranoid. This got even worse when I got seriously sick with cancer in 2014. By God’s grace it was caught at an early stage and I only needed surgery. However, during this time of recovery and healing, I still had a big fear of dying. I thought that my life would end any time.

In 2019 I actually died but not physically, only my old self died when I surrendered my life to Jesus. I became spiritually born again and now that I was indwelt by the Holy Spirit my extreme fear of dying vanished.

Why did that happen?

Before I was saved, my life perspective was only temporal and natural. I was only focused on my life on earth and what could be seen. Though I believed in God and Jesus, I had no true relationship with God and I didn’t have the Holy Spirit.

After my salvation, the seed of eternity which God has planted in our hearts, began to grow and changed my temporal and natural life perspective into an eternal and supernatural life perspective. My focus was now on God’s kingdom and what was unseen. I started to have a true and intimate relationship with God.

Once you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and surrendered your life to Him, you don’t need to be afraid of dying anymore because He promised us that “whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” ~ John 3:16

And this is the promise that he made to us—eternal life. ~ 1 John 2:25

Nobody can take this away from you anymore.

I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. ~ John 10:28

If you haven’t done yet, surrender your life to Jesus Christ, accept Him as your Lord and Savior, and live your life with eternity in your mind and heart. Only with Christ, you can overcome death and life your life in eternity.

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. ~ Ecclesiastes 3:11

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. ~ Colossians 1:3-4
