JESUS IS ETERNAL LIFE
(He’s The Very Life Of God)
👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
📖 TO THE BIBLE
John 5:26 AMP C “For even as the Father has life in Himself and is self-existent, so He has given to the Son to have life in Himself and be self existent.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
The Lord Jesus, in our opening verse, declared that He had the same kind of life as the Father does. Notice the progression of truth as He brought His disciples to the understanding of who He really was. First, He said to them, “I have life in me, just as the Father does; inherent and self-existent life.” Next, in John 14:6 AMPC, He said, “…I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me.”
Notice the definite article, the Life! With those words, He meant, “I am Deity”; and He was right. While the disciples were still grappling with that thought, Jesus took them another step further. He said, “Anyone who has seen me, has seen the Father and doesn’t need to keep searching for the Father” (John 14:9). How true! When you find Jesus, and accept Him as your Lord, your search is over. He’s the way, and also the destination. Think about these blessed words of Jesus about Himself! How do you explain them?
He goes from saying, “As the Father has life in Himself, so He has given to the son to have life in Himself,” to saying, “I am that life!” Recall the words of His prayer in John 17:2- 3; He said, “As You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” If He is “the life” or “life eternal,” then He’s indeed the very essence of life. Glory to His Name forever!

Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the impartation of eternal life to my spirit. When I received Jesus, I received life in its entirety. I’m full of life, and everything I do exudes the incorruptible life. Divine life emits from me in words and in deeds, because as Jesus is, so am I. Hallelujah!
