We can have eternal life in one way, and what is that way? Converting ourselves to Christ and leaving everything that is not pleasing to God, following His commandments and fulfilling them above any obstacle.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
When we leave everything behind and cling to the faith that is in the Lord, all things will be made new because we left behind everything that prevented us from following the Lord. Everyone who comes to Christ passes from death to life.
