Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Life is described as a state of being alive and living.
But this only describes the biological and physiological state of life leaving the very source of life which gives vitality to that state of being alive or living ...the spirit.
The greek connotation gives the difference of life God gives or offers to us
The Life ... zoe ..gk, meaning ... life, quick, alive which Jesus offers
and life ...psuche ...gk, meaning ..breath or the animal transcient only which all living possesses. In other words ...psuche..gk.. life, describes the state of living or being alive.
God the father has given us life again, since we lost it through disobedience, which goes beyond the animal transcient.
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. Jn 3:16
God has given us a choice of life we have to make. That decision rest with you.
Zoe...gk or Psuche ...gk. which of the two (life) do you choose.
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 1 Jn 5:11-12
Life is only in Jesus Christ who vitalizes our mortal body. Without Him you do not have life but only the animal transcient controlled by the god of this world.
The record or testimony of God states clearly what life is and what is not.
(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 1 Jn 1:2
Jesus said I am the resurrection and the Life.
For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; Col 1:19
Our influences and urges to do one thing or the other determines what kind of life is in you ...zoe or ...psuche.
To access the Father for all supplies, it is only by the life Jesus Christ
Zoe ..gk is living life from Jesus and obtaining supplies from him which possess eternal life. That is Building up treasures in heaven where moth will not eat or touch them.
Psuche...gk is life possessed of sin and death. That is Building treasures on earth with stealing, killing and destruction. This is life without Christ the source of it. Life filled with carnality which genders to death.
Jesus is the Life.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Rom 8:2
Jesus is the life and must be in all that we seek for and run after in this world
For to be carnally minded (psuche..gk, life) is death; but to be spiritually minded (zoe..gk, life) is life and peace. Rom 8:6
Jesus, the life must be Lord over your spirit, soul and body.
God bless you.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
