The third part of our church mission statement is … Share Life.
Life is one of those big Bible words. It is filled with meaning. We know from the Bible that God is the source of all life as we know it. In the very beginning of time God breathed His life into Adam and Adam became a living being.
There is no possibility for life of any type to exist when God withholds His breath.
God placed Adam and Eve in a beautiful garden and in the center of the garden God planted the Tree of Life. God is the originator and sustainer of all life.
A very interesting passage of scripture is found in the book of Job:
14 “If He should determine to do so, If He should gather to Himself His spirit and His breath, 15 All flesh would perish together, And man would return to dust. (Job 34:14–15)
God the Father took His life and gave it to His Son Jesus Christ. Then God granted that Jesus would give that very same life to those who would believe in Him as the Savior of all mankind. Jesus said:
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. (John 10:10)
Jesus is … the bread of life, the light of life, the resurrection and the life, the way, the truth, and the life.
God has given to mankind natural life and He has also offered us eternal life. When we believe in Jesus Christ we receive eternal life both in the present and the future sense. We possess the very life of God from the day we give our lives to Him. God’s life is filled with vitality and energy.
We have been given so much that we can share with others.
Give it away today! Bless someone. Pray for them. Give them a word of encouragement. Speak a prophetic word into their lives. Freely you have received, now freely give.
