John 3:36 NLT
“And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.””
There is a wonderful little word in this verse that would be easy to miss. It is the word “has.” Anyone who believes in the Son of God HAS eternal life. Not will have. Not gets someday. Has. Right now. When we trust in Jesus and choose to follow Him God gives us eternal life right then. We have it right now. Eternal life is much more than just living forever. It means we know God and we share His life–the life that has always been and always will be.
