And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son (1 John 5:11).
Man has long looked for a way to live forever. Legend has it that Juan Ponce de Leon searched for the Fountain of Youth in Florida way back in 1513. Researchers keep trying to keep us healthy longer and prolong life. Cloning has the potential of copying ourselves to live another lifetime. Medicines to slow down aging, cosmetics to cover it up, and plastic surgery continue to be big businesses.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).
However, the truth is that we don't have to go to extreme measures to live forever. We will all do that. The question becomes not if but where. Will we live in the joy, peace, and glory of God's presence in heaven where nothing bad will ever happen, or will we live it in the absolute torment of hell? We get to choose.
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous unto eternal life (Matthew 25:46).Some people try to ignore the question, but that won't prevent them from choosing. If they don't choose Christ as their Lord and Savior and let that change the way they live, they choose hell by default. We will all live forever, but it's our choice where.
