Awareness of God

Lesson 4

I Am the Life


Jesus is Life just as God is life, because He is like the Father. Jesus is God's gift to man that man can experience the life God intended man to have before the fall.


When Adam sinned death entered into the world. Jesus died for those sins and rose again to offer life to those who believe in His name. But you must believe.

Scripture Support:

John 3:14-17 (KJV)
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

John 14:6 (KJV)
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 10:10 (KJV)
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Romans 5:8-10 (KJV)
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

Romans 6:5-11 (KJV)
For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin. 8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: 9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

II Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.

Colossians 3:10 (KJV)
And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:


Since Jesus is Life, and he promised to give it to those who believe in Him, it is important to believe. Not only must one believe that Jesus gives eternal life, but one need not wait until heaven to begin to enjoy the life that God has granted through his Son. It is through Jesus that we can live our lives abundantly and enjoy whatever circumstances come our way because we can rest assured that he has overcome anything that may stand against us.


Since Jesus is Life, I will focus my eyes on Him and allow Him to live His life through me. I need not worry myself with trivial concerns of this world. Instead, knowing that I have died to self and that Jesus is the source of Life, I will let Christ live through me and fill me with Life more abundantly.
