Eternal Life Starts Now

Today I found out that someone I’ve known for a very long time has cancer. She’s expected to live 6 months with treatment, 3 months without. Cancer sucks. I hardly knew how to react to the news. But since I’m an English major, I decided to cry and blog about it.

Death is never an easy thing to accept. But the reality is… she’s going to be okay. These next few months may not be great. They may be filled with anxiety. They may be filled with pain. But she’s going to live through it. That’s the amazing thing about being in Christ: eternal life starts now.

It’s not some distant concept that maybe her spirit will go through a little tunnel of light to the “other side.” No. Her heart will skip one beat and then go on to continue pumping blood. Just a blip in the eternal heart monitor. No harm done. Because eternal life begins the moment we accept Christ… and thereafter nothing can touch us.
