Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
There are some people who believe that besides Jesus Christ, the Son of God, there are other ways to have eternal life, but the truth is, eternal life is only found in Jesus Christ. There is no other way to have eternal life except through Jesus Christ (John 14:6; John 3:16). Therefore, in order to have eternal life we must have Jesus Christ.
We should rejoice that though Jesus Christ we have eternal life, meaning that even after physical death, we will continue to live with Him.
