This passed Sunday we Celebrated Spring & The Life that Jesus gives us, unfortunately I had a muscle spasm attack on stage and had to be rushed to the doctor. Nevertheless God is faithful and my wife and the leadership took control of the meeting;
THE ZOE’ LIFE OF GOD
Celebrate Life, Celebrate Spring, Celebrate Jesus
As we’ve stepped into a “New Season” the Season of “Spring”
Just the word, makes you want to spring up, get excited, smile and be free!!
That’s great because Spring is not a “dry” season it’s a season of New Life!
Deu 30:19 “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,
The Greek word for “life” is zoe. This is the root of the English words “zoo” and “zoology.” Zoe is used of the state of existing and being animate which is common to all mankind, whether you are Christian or not, For example, Paul says to the idol worshipping Greeks at Athens, “The God who made the world and all things in it…He Himself gives to all life (zoe) and breath and all things…for in Him we live (zao–the verb form) and move and have our being” (Acts 17:25-28 NASV).
“In Him was life, and the life was the light of men, and the light shines in the darkness…” (John 1:4-5 NASV). Again, John says: “And the life was manifested, and we have seen and bear witness and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us”
Jesus’ foremost purpose in coming was to give zoe life to men, that is, to cause men to enter into and partake of the very life of God. “…I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly” (John 10:10 NASV). “For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him, may have eternal life; and I myself will raise him up on the last day” (John 6:40 NASV). Again, “…Thou gavest Him authority over all mankind, that to all whom Thou hast given Him, He may give eternal life” (John 17:2 NASV).
I encourage you to “Live the Zoe’ Life of God” it cannot and will not be taken away from you if you believe in Jesus Christ.
God bless you, Pastor Brenden Naidoo
