We move from living at the most 120 years, to living the life God lives, which is eternal.
This is what we are to lay ahold of, and fight the good fight of faith for.
It is not by works but by faith, we receive.
It is a gift, a gift of God’s life. Whatever and whoever God is, God does, God’s character, actions, power, strength and glory. Whatever and whoever is God is included in this word, the Zoe, the life of God. We know God is love, so eternal life is the God kind of life, which is love, an eternal love that is given to all who believe in Jesus as the mediator between God and humanity.
This is a further understanding of the righteousness of God. The life of God is the righteousness of God given to us, by faith. The actions and character of God is a gift given to those who fight the good fight of faith, and lay ahold of the eternal life of God.
Here is how God chose to give us human beings His life, called eternal life.
2 Cor. 5:21 from the NLT: “For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.”
