The crowning acheivement of the plan of redemption was for man to receive the gift of ETERNAL LIFE.
When you make Jesus your Lord, you receive ETERNAL LIFE. This life is RESURRECTION life, it is OVERCOMING life, it is JOY life, it is LOVE life - it's the GOD-KIND of life.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill and to destroy: I am come that they might have LIFE and that they might have it more ABUNDANTLY. John 10:10
