8-6-2017 “LIVING THIS ETERNAL LIFE ‘LIFE’!” John 6:32-33

In this weeks study Bro. Leo continues our study of the Biblical definition of living a Christian life by looking at the Biblical definition of eternal life.

The word “life” is translated from the Greek word “zōē” which means inner spiritual life. In the context of vs.2 it means the divine life of Jesus Christ being lived out within us and through us.

In John 6:33 and John 10:10 Jesus tells us the reason He came to earth was to bring us life/zoe. Jesus came to bring us all that He is in His highest blessed state. When we get saved we have the Son in us (1John 5:10-12, John 1:4) and His life should be shining through us in His fullness to everyone we meet(John 1:16).

Jesus tells us, in John 6:40,58, that everyone who believes in Him has eternal life/zoe.  Our zoe/eternal life begins when Jesus breathes His zoe/life into us at the moment we believe in Him(John 1:11-12).

John 10:27-29 gives us a few characters of eternal life/zoe.  1) Jesus knows us(vs.27).  2) We know Jesus(vs.27).  3) We follow Jesus(vs.27).  4) Once received, we will never loose our eternal life/zoe(vs.28).

Question:  Are we allowing Jesus’ zoe/life living through us daily or are we suppressing His zoe? (Gal.2:20)

Scriptures used in today’s study:

Joh 6:32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
Joh 6:33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
Joh 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Joh 6:58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

Joh 20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
Joh 20:20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.
Joh 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
Joh 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Joh 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Joh 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
Joh 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
Joh 10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

Joh 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
Joh 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

1Jn 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
1Jn 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
1Jn 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
1Jn 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
