Eternal Life is a Relationship with Christ Now

"...the life associated with the kingdom of God [that Jesus died and rose to establish] is not just a benefit when you die. It exists now. The only definition of eternal life that Christ gave is relational, as described in John 17:3: 'Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.' Eternal life involves discipleship here on Earth--knowing Christ and following Him." (Ron Barnett, Intentional Disciplemaking)
