ABOUT US

Zoe it's origin from Ancient Greece and it means "life" in Greek, which means the life of God, the God kind of life. It can be found in John 10:10. Zoe is the life that Jesus came for us to have according to John 10:10, it's the kind of life we will experience when we learn to live on earth by the principles of Gods kingdom...God's way of doing things. In the Greek New Testament, Zoe has a special meaning. It speaks of the life that is given by God through Christ Jesus to those who believe the gospel. Scripture reveals that the source of this Zoe life is God the Father. Indeed, Jesus call Him "the living (Zoe) Father" John 6:57, indicating the Zoe life is the very life that God has in himself. Having life in himself, the Father imparted this life to the son:" For just as the father has life in himself, even so He gave to the son also to have life in himself (John 5:26). In turn, the son manifested this life to the world. Consider John's words "In Him was life, and the life was the light of men, and the light shines in the darkness...John 1:4-5. 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". (1 John 1:2) Paul confirms John's testimony when he says that God's purpose "now has been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel (2 Timothy 1:9-10). Jesus' foremost purpose in coming was to give life to men, that is, to cause men to enter into and partake of the very life of God. "For this is he 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).

 

So let us live life now to the fullest by His eternal life, and be raised by it later. For we have been given " Everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence (2 Peter 1:3). Let us not take this life for granted, trivialize it, forget it, neglect it, or turn it into cliches. Let us not doubt or disbelieve it, let it slip from our grasp, or surrender it to the enemy of our souls. Instead, let us consider what we have received and reckon on the Zoe, life of God who indwells us. Let us trust His promises, believe His word, take God at His word, and live by faith. Let us sow to the Spirit and from the Spirit reap eternal life        (Galatians 6:8). And as we continue to abide in Him, His Zoe life will cause us to grow and mature, and give us confidence in the day of judgement (1 John 2:28 ; 4:17).
