Advent Day 8: The Gift of Eternal Life

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 1 John 5:11-12

Beyond this veil of life, another life awaits us. In our daily rush, we seem to forget how momentary our life here is. We spend our days making here comfortable rather than preparing our hearts for the other side.

Please don’t let the partying, gifting and decorations in this season sway your heart. Truthfully, it is not what Christmas is about. It is all about Jesus.

Whoever has Jesus, has eternal life. Having Jesus is about having a relationship with Him. Eternal life is a free gift for you and me.

The only way we can partake of eternal life is through Jesus. He has that gift of eternal life in Him. 

Do you have Jesus?

Family Activity: As a family, reminisce on how have you been living your lives lately? Have you Jesus at the center? Set aside time to re-organize and plan your lives with Jesus.

Prayer: Dear Jesus beyond here is you waiting for me on the other side. May I be greeted at the gates by your angels. May I be welcomed as a soldier who fought gallantly. May I be embraced by your sweet loving presence in Jesus Name. I long to worship along with the uncountable number of angels, the saints gone before and the twenty-four elders.
