Eternal Life

John 3:15
That whosoever believeth in him (Jesus) should not perish, but have eternal life.

Eternal Life 
What is it? I've seen some people comment they wouldn't want to live forever. Without Jesus, they're right. But if you're born again, they are mistaken. So, what is the prize? The reason we desire Eternal Life? 

Jesus, our Lord and Savior, Son of God, raised by the carpenter Joseph, told us He goes to prepare a place for us. John 14: 1-3. ...In My Father's house are many mansions...  Sounds wonderful to me. 
In Revelation, we're told of crystal rivers, healing trees, the paradise of God. 

Consider the wonder of a beautiful sunset, the majestic beauty of a high peak reaching into the sky and clothed with a mantle of white snow. The awesome moment of birth of a new life. The stars in the night sky. All these but a mere taste of the awesome life in God.

Have you ever been at the bedside of a believer as they look over the edge of this life and their eyes shine with the glimpse of eternity with Him? Joy floods the room for the wonders that we will behold when we see Him. 

Ponder of the Goodness of God. His majesty. How awesome is our God. And realize that here in this life we can only see a dim shadow of the Glory to come. 

Strive for the prize and know that eternal life is worth everything. There is no comparison. Life with God in paradise where there is no more sickness or tears. And to be in His Presence. It just doesn't get better. Seek the Lord while He may be found. Rejoice in finding Jesus and be born again into the family of God. And know Eternal Life is worth it all.
