  MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB

 

 

 

CHRIST IN THE LIGHT OF THE PAULINE REVELATION

 

 

[part 6 of 13]

 

____John 6:47: "He that believeth hath Eternal Life."

 

____Believing is actual possession, so the believer is a possessor of this the greatest gift ever given to man-Eternal Life. John 1:4 "In him was Life, and that life is the light of men." How little we have appreciated the fact that Eternal Life in man has given to us all the creative ability manifested in this mechanical age.

 

____No heathen nation ever had any inventors or creators until Eternal Life came to them.

 

____When we boast of Anglo-Saxon superiority, it is simply the superiority of Eternal Life over natural life. There are two words translated Life in the New Testament: "Zoe"-the Nature of the Father that Jesus brought, and gives to man in the New Creation ; and "Psuche"-the natural human life. "Psuche" has never produced any great literature; has never given to man anything that was of any real value.

 

____Let this become clear in our minds, that "Zoe," this new kind of Life, is the Nature of the Father, and the Father is Love. So when this new kind of Life comes into a man, it drives out the old nature and the New Nature takes possession. It is just like Israel moving into the promised land, driving out the inhabitants, and taking over the country for themselves.

 

____Eternal Life has taken us over.

 

____It has captivated our reasoning faculties, illuminating them, making them the slave of this New Order, so that wherever a man who has Eternal Life goes you see the marks of it.

 

____He is a New Creation man. He belongs to the New Order of things. He has a new kind of Love -Agapa-and that Love makes a home in which it is safe for babies to be born.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
