“Amen, Amen I say to you that the one hearing my word and trusting in the one having sent me has eternal life and does not come into judgment but has gone out of death into life.” This verse and others like it in John tell me that I as a trusting Christian have already been given eternal life. The tenses in this verse are present and not future. I have that Life now and that Life will never die. I have passed from judgment and death into Life. There is no fear in death because though the physical body dies, the real me lives into eternity.
