“In him was life, and the life was the light of men” (John 1:4)

The zóé life is often referred to as the God life; meaning it is a life that goes deeper than our mere existence; it implies a fuller, richer, deeper, eternal life. This is the kind of life Jesus described in John 10:10; “He came that we might have life (zóé) and have it abundantly.” We can easily forget or take for granted that we walk in eternal life now. Paul writes in Ephesians 1:3: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.”

We were meant to rise above this world and live in the heavenly places with Christ. These unseen spiritual blessings manifest as an understanding and appropriation of the life of God in our daily living. Do we live as those who are accepted in the beloved; forgiven and redeemed; do we bask in His love and grace embracing His goodness and unconditional love toward us? Is the Holy Spirit alive and well leading and guiding us to God’s very best for our lives? It’s important to ask ourselves these questions because Jesus also warned us that there is a thief who comes only to steal, kill and destroy. It is these spiritual blessings the thief comes to take away in order to rob us of the zóé life that God intended. Are you tired of just going through the motions? Decide today to enjoy all that God has given you through Christ. Embrace the zóé life!
