Jesus is Eternal life

“Jesus told him, ” l am the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through Me”. Jn 14:6
NLT

The Messiah declares that He is “the Life”. Not “a life”. Who else can make a similar claim? This is another vital revelation for the body of Christ and a stronghold against the kingdom of darkness. Yes, Jesus Himself said it; He is the Life.
Others talk about finding one’s own life.

There are basically four types of life in the Greek rendition, but let’s talk about two. One is ” *psuche*” which refers to the human life and the other one is called ” *Zoe*”, meaning the God-kind of life.

Here, Jesus refers to ZOE, the God life or eternal life which is superior to the human life. With this life, Jesus imparts the nature of God into a man to make him born again (John 17:2). _”For as the Father has life in himself, even so he gave to the Son also to have life in himself” (John 5:26).

And that’s why Jesus likened Himself to the vine with believers as the branches. Without His life in us we can do nothing (Jn 15:5). And we cannot have any hope for living forever with God!
To enjoy eternal life, we must first be in Him, and remain in Him.
” Anyone who does not remain in Me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. . .” (Jn 15:16).

Paul, testifying to this, said, *”in Him we live and move and exist”* (Acts 17:28). We cease to live or exist outside of Christ. That’s the plain truth.

It’s not possible to neglect Jesus, the Eternal Life, in this lifetime; and still hope to have it someday!
Without this “Zoe-life”, it’s never possible to know the real meaning of human life.
John further said of Him, that Christ existed from the beginning. ” *This One who is [eternal] life itself was revealed to us, and we have seen Him. And now we testify and proclaim to you that He is the one who has eternal life. . .”*(1Jn 1:1-2)

*Since Jesus is the Life, “Zoe”, He is able to give eternal life, God’s own kind of life, to those who believe in Him.* For you cannot give what you don’t have or possess. Jesus said _”… *I am* come that they might *have [eternal] life*, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).

Are you looking for the real meaning and purpose to this life on earth and beyond? Then you need Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. He is the only way, the truth and the life. Believe in Him and remain in Him. *It matters what you do with Jesus in this life, for He is the very eternal life that you seek*.

Now is the time to take up His offer of forgiveness and life everlasting. Look no further. Stick with Him, and be devoted to Him. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always. !
