The promise of eternal life, or everlasting life, is the great promise given to us in the message of salvation through Jesus Christ. Much of the Scriptural basis for eternal life in Christ is found in the writings of the Apostle John, in his gospel, and in the epistles he later wrote to the early Church.
God has given us eternal life, and that eternal life is in the form of His Son who came to earth to pay the price for our sins. If we believe on Him, and receive Him through faith we already have, eternal life. However, without believing and receiving His Son, we simply do not have the eternal life that God sent through Jesus, but are abiding under the law of sin.
1 John 5:11-12
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in the Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
John 11:25-26 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

We need God's help, through His Spirit, to obey Him from the heart and bring our thoughts, attitudes and actions in line with His. We must allow His Spirit to become the guiding force in our lives so that we might have this "new heart."
To grasp how God's Spirit works within us, we must understand what God's Spirit is.
The Holy Spirit is not a separate "person" forming part of a "Holy Trinity". There simply is no biblical evidence to support the common belief that the Holy Spirit is a separate person. In Scripture the Holy Spirit instead is described most often as the power of God at work in our lives to lead us
15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth.

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
Psalm 128:3-4, ESV
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. Yes, this will be the blessing for the man who fears the Lord.
But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children — with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.
God makes it clear to us that peace is not something that we work for. It is a gift freely given by God to us through Jesus Christ. The prophet Isaiah declared that Jesus would be the Prince of Peace, fully reigning amongst those who believe in Him and granting peace to those who ask.
Peace is not found in an ideology, religion or mindset. It is also not a product of something we do or something we don't do. We cannot garner peace by being rid of something or gaining something. Peace is found in a person, and that person is Jesus Christ.
Here are several scriptures that assure us of the promise of peace that is made available as God's gift to those who put their hope and trust in Him.
“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.
