God said that He loved us so much that He gave His only begotten Son, so that those that believed would have eternal life. The life that He spoke of is the "zoe" life or the fullness and abundance of life. Eternal life doesn't mean time or condition, but supply. God wants us to connect with Him, the eternal Source so that we will never run out of what we need. We must learn to live from God, so that we can completely live for Him.
