Eternity by Desires
St. Luke 18:18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
Nobody will inherit eternal life because he or she wants to live forever, Nobody will inherit eternal life just because he is a pastor, nobody will inherit eternal life just because he know somebody that know somebody that knows God, nobody will inherit eternal life simply because he is performing signs and wonders.
Nobody will either enter the kingdom of God by mistake, on judgement day, God and His glorious Angels cannot make the mistake of using someone records in place of your own.
For a man to inherit eternal life in Christ Jesus, you must discover the role you must play here on earth. You cannot play that role in the grave rather the role must be discovered and play here on earth.
From our scripture above, the ruler must have observed Jesus Christ and His teachings and need to verify his own quota.
You must have been hearing people talk about Jesus Christ, have you actually discovered your role to becoming a kingdom citizen?
To live in eternity with Jesus demand from us total loyalty to His will here on earth. Your role includes to discover who God is and be born again, give up the pleasure of sin and seek the way of truth, this is how we begin to play our role into eternal life with Jesus.
