Word of Life
Let’s meditate on the “Word of Life” this morning.
We find this verse in 2 places in the scriptures:-
16 Holding forth the “word of life”; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.”
In this chapter Paul taught us what it meant to “hold forth” the word of life. That we are to serve God in all sincerity and without complaining or murmuring.
“1 John 1:
1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life”
In this scripture, notice that we are taught to use our spiritual ears and eyes to “hear” and “see”. And by faith, we must learn to press in and “touch” Him!
As we pray and seek Him everyday, He will not fail to speak to lead and guide us. He too will give us the “vision” to show us how we are to serve Him.
And as we read, study and meditate on the word of life daily, we can experience His power upon us. Yes, through the might and power of His Name, His word and His Blood!
Today the Lord wants us to hold forth His word.
Notice that we are not expounding on the “Word of God”.which is different. The Word of God has to do with His whole written word in the Bible. But the Word of Life is His word that tells us what He has given us in the form of “Zoe” life. This word is used in 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”
This word “Word” in Greek stands for Logos
and “Life” stands for ZOE
Today, the Lord wants us to focus on His ZOE life! and in Greek it means:-
“the absolute fulness of life, both essential and ethical, which belongs to God,
a life active and vigorous, devoted to God, blessed, in the portion even in this world of those who put their trust in Christ”
Simply put, what and which area of His word are you seeking today? Whether it is Peace or Joy or Health or Strength or Wealth, it is all in the all encompassing word “ZOE” life. Yes, we can have the abundant life, the God kind of life, the absolute fulness of life, an active and vigorous life!
Just ask and receive,
Seek and you shall find,
Boldly knock and the door will be opened for you to enter to find your pasture!
