1 John 1:2
The life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us (NKJV)
The life of God is called ZOE. It is eternal life that has been extended to us through Christ Jesus. He made it available to us by giving his life as a perfect and suitable ransom for our transgressions. He did this so that we could be reunited to God. So that we can live, breathe and walk in righteousness. For those who embrace this eternal life, they have access to the abundance that comes from God – his glory and unending grace.
However, before we get ahead of ourselves, we have to strongly note that a man living in sin cannot access this life of God. This is simply because he hasn’t surrendered his life to God and he hasn’t confessed Jesus as his Lord and Savior. There is absolutely nothing a man can trade or buy in this world to enjoy the life of God UNLESS he believes in the finished works of Christ (his death and resurrection).
“For God so loved the world that He gave
His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (NKJV)
Until you embrace God’s love, until your accept his gracious extension of eternal life, until you grant Christ entrance into your life, you can’t live in a way that will please God. God has set high standards for you and he helps you to achieve them in Christ. So why wait? Accept the offer of Christ today.
It is the nature and life of God in a man that can grant him entrance into the kingdom of God. You need to be born again if you want to enjoy the bountiful promises that Christ offers. You need to surrender your life totally to him and make him your Lord. You have to do away with the things of the flesh and be born of the spirit. Anyone who keeps living in sin is of the devil and cannot gain freedom unless he runs to Jesus.
1 John 3:6-8
Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. (KJV)
Conclusively, I want to implore you to give your life to Christ. Be born again and believe in the finished works of Christ so you can have entrance into the throne of God by reason of the life of God in you!
Prayer: Lord please forgive me of my sins. I am sorry for living my life the way I please. I ask that you wash me clean with your blood. I believe in the death of Jesus and I believe that God raised him from death to give me everlasting life. Lord, pour your life into me today. Let me live for you and please you all my days. Amen.
