The Gift of God Is Eternal Life

Not many promises to the elect are as direct, as resilient, and as foremost, as that written in the book of Romans. Few promises stand out as being the one promise for which every Christian ought to aim: eternal life is God’s gift to those who believe Jesus is His son.

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

(Romans 6:23)

Our lives are in preparation for a time far greater than the mortal life we are living today. Eternal life promises a life with God the Father and Jesus sitting at His right hand, glorified with them and judging the world.

The destiny we look to is beyond anything we can imagine this life can provide. The ultimate joy we will experience once we die will not compare with the lifetime of pain we may have had to endure by claiming Christ as our savior.

Yet God’s grace over our lives is worth more than mountains filled with gold and chests brimful and running over with jewels. Nothing comes close to what we will have after this life, for the gift of God is eternal life.
