The Holy Spirit in the Apostles' Creed

The Life Everlasting

July 4, 2014   •   John 3:16, John 11:21-27, & John 17:1-5

“The life everlasting.” Those are the final three words of the Apostles’ Creed and seeing as they come at the very end and right before we say “Amen,” it’s easy to just glide right over top of those words. Yet what we confess each time we say this is quite probably more than we can wrap our minds around most of the time. Also, the very prospect of an unending life in God’s New Creation comes pretty close to being what God’s whole project of salvation has been about all along. If eternal life with God really is our future, then we should never mention it in passing—not even as we bring the Creed in for a landing! Today on Groundwork, we think about “the life everlasting” and dig into Scripture to wrap our minds around the great reality of what we're professing to believe.
