– Bible News: Zoe God Kind Of Life
The Greek word translated “life” in this verse is zoe, which means the God-kind of life.
“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” – John 10:10
First, we must know that Zoe is not what you would get when you get to heaven. No, Zoe is what you get when you become born again by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Receiving eternal life is the most miraculous blessing in a Christian life. We call it the new birth. Some call it getting religion, but it is the supernatural life of God been implanted in a human body.
In the new birth, our spirits are born of God. It is the life and nature of God coming into your spirit that makes the inward man a new creature.
“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” – Romans 8:11
The Bible here is trying to bring believers into the knowledge of the life of God which dwells in them, because many Christians do not realize what they carry on the inside of them.
The Bible made us to realize that carrying the life of God means you are a spirit being and you don’t need to work the earth a human but as a god which he has made us to be according to psalms 82:6.
According to Apostle Paul, getting born again simply means you would have to do away with your old self and embrace the new creature you have now become in Christ.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17
