Unless eternal life abides in you, it cannot work in your life.
"Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him." 1 John 3:15
The keyword is "abide", many have eternal life, but don't have it abiding in them, it means to abide so as to govern, to remain active, and operative.
No hater has eternal life operating in him. If he did, it would make him a lover instead of a hater.
No criminal has eternal life working in him. This kind of life doesn't make criminals, it makes helpers.
No drunkard has it active in him, if he did, it would stop him from drinking.
When thieves receive it, they become workers of that which is good, they become givers.
When the sick receive it, and become conscious of it, they become strong and healthy. There is no sickness it cannot cure. There is no disease that can stand it. That's why Jesus said that those believe on Him shall lay hands on the sick shall recover (Mark 16: 15-18); He wasn't talking about praying for the sick, but rather, imparting eternal life to diseased bodies through laying on of hands.
Eternal life is a disease destroyer.
It destroys selfishness. It restores peace. It makes men lovers.
It makes people bright, intelligent and God fearing.
Unless eternal life abides in you, it cannot work in your life. You allow it to remain in you by being conscious of it and its ability 24/7.
I have eternal life in me, I cannot sin, I cannot hate or hurt people. This eternal life has made me a super intelligent, victorious, extraordinary love being. Glory to God!
