"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
If you have accepted God's free gift of salvation by trusting Christ as your Savior, you have the promise of life after death. The last breath you take on this earth is simply an entry into God's presence. But here's something even better. Your eternal life began the moment you received Christ. Right now, at this very moment you are living in eternity. It's not something that will happen. It has happened. It's a present possession. But wait! There's more. Not only are you living in eternity, but Christ's spirit -- the Holy Spirit -- is living within you. You are in a relationship with Almighty God. You are living an eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord right now. Knowing this should bring inexpressible joy to your heart. Rejoice!
