Eternal life doesn't start when we die. Isn't that an amazing thought? As Christians, the life you are living today, right now, IS your eternal life. Do you think that's a good thing, or were you hoping for something magic to happen to change you - later? We all look forward to an eternal life free of the evils of this world, and that promise is real - as Christians we claim it, look forward to it and we will experience it when our earthly bodies give out. That's a given.
But, our personality, our spirit, who we are, will not magically change. We take ourselves, whoever that is, with us into that glorious future. Are you the person you want to be, are you the person God intended you to be or are you waiting for God to click His fingers and change you, or are you waiting to "do the work" later?
God is all about character development, about change, about getting people ready to join Him and experience the joy, hope and freedom of living the God-filled life waiting for them in His Kingdom. What are you waiting for? The Holy Spirit is available now, the Holy Spirit is the agent of the change you are craving, the agent standing by ready, willing and able to begin your make-over, so that you can have everything He wants for you now. Matt. 7:7 says, "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."..... and that means NOW! Remember, God's ways are not our ways. You are living your eternal life now!
