“And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son” (1 John 5:11 NASB). What kind of life has God given us? Eternal life! We give gifts to our friends and loved ones, but those gifts perish, they wear out or become outdated. Not so with God’s gift; it is eternal. Jesus came that we might have life–abundant and everlasting; and regardless of the changes around us, our everlasting life remains the same. It never changes, it never grows old, it is never out of date.
