Life is mysterious.
And that’s the simple truth.
Despite the pains we suffer each day, we still want to live.
And that’s because we know the truth ourselves.
That death brings an end to our relationship here on earth.
The bible says in Ecclesiastes,
For the living know that they will die,
but the dead know nothing;
they have no further reward,
and even their name is forgotten
But is there a chance we will meet with our dead friends or family members again?
What about us?
When we die, is there another blissful life out there?
This evening, after a fun time with my colleagues at work, I heard a piece of sad news.
One of my patients suffering from a terminal disease has passed on.
He was a friend and a good man.
When I heard, I was shocked.
He was a Christian and an excellent father.
Is there hope in Christ that he is rewarded?
Yes, there are bible verses about eternal life that confirms we will not die in vain.
God is merciful, and he has loved us from the beginning of the world.
That’s why Jesus had to die in the first place.
The scriptures say,
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life
So, it’s that simple.
We will not die hopeless if we believe in Christ.
I have compiled bible verses about everlasting life to motivate your soul.

Eternal Life After Death – Here’s what you should know
1. Eternal life is a gift
I find it hard to believe that we are blessed entirely by our works
Yes, we need to be faithful and keep all God’s commands to be saved
But, in the first place, our works will count for nothing if there was no hope for Eternity
That is, God has freely given us the gift of eternal life because he loves us
That’s the essence of Christ death
That through the blood of Jesus Christ we will be redeemed back to himself
He loves us and has gifted us with Eternal life
It is now a choice to accept or reject life through our works
The scripture says,
This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live
2. To secure everlasting life, you must repent
Though Eternity is a gift from God, its not accessible to everyone
To access God blessing of life after death, you must accept that his your savior
This is quite a simple task.
It is all about believing that he is lord
Not just that, you must obey God’s commandments
There are several commandments of God you must obey to secure evaluating life
In simple terms, it entails loving God and your neighbor
The scriptures say,
For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.
3. Eternity is a daily fight
If you’ve accepted Christ, it does not end there
Keeping his commands each day of our lives is not an easy task
Think about the temptations you face each day
From fornication, stealing, adultery and the rest of them
But you must be resolute in securing God’s final blessing of Eternity
The scripture says
But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
1 Timothy 6: 11-12
