12 Qualities of Eternal Life

1. IT IS UNRIVALED, UNIQUE, & EXCLUSIVE - There is nothing like it. It is divine.
"In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. (Joh 1:4 NKJ)
"And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. (Joh 17:3 NKJ)

2. IT IS SUPERNATURAL - Not this-worldly. It is heavenly.
"The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven. As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly." (1Co 15:47-48 NKJ)

3. IT IS IMPERISHABLE & INCORRUPTIBLE
"Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed-- in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." (1Co 15:51-52 NKJ)

4. IT IS INVALUABLE & PRECIOUS
"knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." (1Pe 1:18-19 NKJ)

5. IT IS IMMORTAL
"For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory." (1Co 15:53-54 NKJ)

6. IT IS ETERNAL - Without Beginning or End
"And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son." (1Jo 5:11 NKJ)

7. IT IS MEASURELESS, ABUNDANT
"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." (Joh 10:10 NKJ)

8. IT IS FULLY SATISFYING
"Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life." (Joh 4:13-14 NKJ)

9. IT IS INVINCIBLE, UNCONQUERABLE - Victorious
"For if by the one man's offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.) (Rom 5:17 NKJ)
"so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.(Rom 5:21 NKJ)
"For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-- our faith. (1Jo 5:4 NKJ)

10. IT IS SPIRITUAL
"That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. (Joh 3:6 NKJ)
"It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. (Joh 6:63 NKJ)

11. IT IS ILLUMINATED, ENLIGHTENED, FULL OF LIGHT
Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." (Joh 8:12 NKJ)

12. IT IS FRUITFUL
I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing." (Joh 15:5 NKJ)
"the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law." (Gal 5:22-23 NKJ)
