Jesus gives LIFE! I'm not talking about mere existence, I'm talking about a fullness of it! Exuberant, fulfilled, content, overJOYed, meaningful, blissful! That's the LIFE Jesus gives. Jesus said, the thief (Satan) comes only to steal, kill and destroy but I have come that you may have LIFE! (Jn 10:10). That word LIFE in the Greek is ZOE. Zoe is the LIFE that comes from God Himself that is also in Jesus. That LIFE was in Adam and Eve BEFORE the fall, but Satan tempted them, they sinned and they lost ZOE. Satan STOLE it from them bringing DEATH in exchange for LIFE. In the same way, Satan stole it from us as well. That's why when Jesus CAME to earth 2000 years ago, He came to bring ZOE. Yes, we still have life apart from Jesus. But that word in the Bible, which describes life in general is "psoo-kay", which simply means existence. GOD WANTS YOU TO DO MORE THAN JUST SURVIVE! HE WANTS YOU TO THRIVE!! Thats why He sent His Son, that whoever believes in HIM (JESUS) will not perish but have ETERNAL LIFE (ZOE). Some 2000 years ago Jesus brought us LIFE. This life is full of HOPE and JOY and its yours for the asking. This Christmas, may you find the greatest gift ever... LIFE! Message me and I can help you with any questions you might have. Merry Christmas!!
