Eternal Life in Christ Jesus Our Lord

Romans 6:23—“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Note 3 on eternal life says: “Eternal life is the very life of the Triune God Himself. This life has been imparted into us on the basis of our having been justified by God, and it is now spreading throughout our being through sanctification and transformation. This will result in our being conformed to the Lord’s image and our being brought into the Lord’s glory, that we may be made suitable to have a part in the manifestation of His glory (Col. 3:4).”

Cross-reference “b” on eternal life leads us to these verses:

Romans 5:21: “In order that just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness unto eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that every one who believes into Him would not perish, but would have eternal life.”

1 John 5:11: “And this is the testimony, that God gave to us eternal life and this life is in His Son.”

  1. I really like this post because it makes it clear that eternal life isn’t just life forever after we die. It is the life of God Himself that can “imparted into our being.” I’m so glad that when we believe in Jesus, God doesn’t just give us hope for eternity but His own eternal life for our present experience so that by its spreading in us we can be transformed to the image of His Son, Jesus Christ.

  2. I used to think eternal life was about going to heaven. I’m so happy it is about Christ living and spreading in me today! I need Him right now.
