The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.—Rom. 6:23.

This is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.—1 John 2:25.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.—John

6:47.

God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. That ye may know that ye have eternal life.- 1 John 5:11, 13.

And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent.-John 17:3.

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.—John 11:25-26.

And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To-day shalt thou be with Me in paradise.—Luke 23:43.

go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.—John 14:2, 3.

For we know that, if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it.

And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.
