I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life (1John 5:13 NIV)

Eternal life is the life and nature of God .It’s the organic and existential attributes of Deity. However, it’s not enough for you to know that this life and nature of God is now yours; you have to seize it.That’s the thrust of the Spirit’s communication through Paul in 1 Timothy 6:12. It says, “Fight the good fight of faith ,lay hold of eternal life….”

The Greek rendering of our underlined portion is “epilambanomai” It means to take a hold of something without letting go. In other words, don’t just be aware that you have eternal life; seize eternal life; take possession of it. This means to live it like you have it.

Every blessed day, walk in the consciousness that you have the life of God in you. Think, act and live as one who’s filled with eternal life. Every now and then, affirm that you have the divine life. It’s incorruptible and can’t be tainted or defiled by sickness, disease failure, death or the devil.

If as a Christian, you’ve been sick and praying, “Oh God , please take away this sickness from me.” That May not change anything, because He already did when He gave you eternal life. Before God, you’re already perfect even though you might be going through trials, pains and difficulties. In His sight, there’s nothing wrong with you.

Therefore, align yourself with His thoughts and visions through the word and declare, “I’m perfected in Christ Jesus; I refuse to accommodate any sickness, disease or pain in my body because I have the life of God in me! I’ve taken hold of eternal life.” You’re an associate of the God- kind; live in this consciousness and be who you are in Christ.

Dear Father ,thank you for giving me eternal life and bringing me into a vital union with you. I’ve taken a hold of eternal life ,and this life is working in every fibre of my being . I rejoice that I’m one spirit with you and thus an associate of the God – king. Amen

John 3.16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

1 John 5:11-13
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
