Did you know that "eternal life" does not just mean the same old humdrum and dreary life we now live extended unto eternity. It means everlasting life of a whole different quality. It means living in Christ, and Christ living in me by his Holy Spirit. If you will believe in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins and put your trust in him, you have God's promise that He will give you "eternal life" in Christ (see 1 John 5:11-13).
Please also consider the following verses from the New Testament about Jesus Christ:
Col 1:13-20 NIV (13) For he [i.e. God the Father] has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, (14) in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (15) He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. (16) For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. (17) He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. (18) And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. (19) For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, (20) and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
