OUR ETERNAL LIFE IN CHRIST


Eternal life is not an unending continuance of this life -- that would, perhaps, be Hell -- but eternal life is quite a different life, divine, not mundane; perfect, not earthly; true life, not corrupt half-life.  We cannot form a conception of eternal life.  What we imagine is ever simply of the earth, temporal, worldly.  Nor could we know anything about our eternal life if it had not appeared in Jesus Christ.  In Him we realize that we were created for the eternal life… "It is life with God, in God, from God; life in perfect fellowship."

-- Emil Brunner in Our Faith
