Eternal Life – Paul Washer

“He saved you so that throughout all of eternity, you would be a blessing to His Son. So start now. Eternal life does not start when you cross over into glory. It starts at the moment of your conversion. Eternal life is this, to know Him so start knowing Him now. The purpose of your salvation is to bless Him, so start blessing Him now.”


“What do you want in heaven? What are you getting out of heaven? What do you want there, why do you even want to go? Think about it! Gates of pearls and streets of gold and all that…you can only swing on a gate so long before you get bored. See that is one of the greatest problems in Christianity and you hear it in our music. Singing more about heaven than the Christ of heaven. Everyone wants to go to heaven, but does everyone who wants to go to heaven want God? That’s why we have to turn our people. We have to turn the people we’re preaching to and tell them what are you doing. Cause I hear your language, I hear your talk and it sounds to me you’re more enamored with a utopian idea than you are with the presence of God. And when they say, “no I’m not”, then just ask them this question, “If eternal life begins with knowing God and since you already have eternal life and the door’s been opened for you to know Him, how much time do you spend knowing Him? That right there will describe the faith of many or reveal it. That we want a utopia more than we want Him.”
