God sent Jesus into the world so we could experience what the language of the New Testament calls life! The Greek for life is Zoe, which means: the quality of life possessed by the one giving it. Jesus is the human manifestation of the life of God (zoe); which means, the life He offers is the life of God! It has always been God’s will that we enjoy the same quality of life He experiences.
As extreme as that seems, it is exactly what Jesus meant when He said, “I have come that they might have life (zoe) and have it abundantly!” He came, taught, was crucified and overcame death so we could have God’s quality of life.
Some would say, “This is too good to be true,” or “No one can ever have that quality of life in this world.” The logical arguments are endless, but God has a different logic. His logic is called Great News, i.e. the Gospel, which is better than anyone has ever seen, heard or even imagined (1 Corinthians 2:9); but we’ve been conditioned to settle for much less than God is offering!
This means the litmus test for what we allow in our life should be based on this question, “Is this something God would allow in His own life?” Or,”Does the quality of my life reflect the quality of God’s life?” How much or how little of the quality of life I am actually experiencing is not the real issue. The real issue is, “What am I willing to settle for?” “How little of what Jesus died to give me will I passively surrender in the face of challenges?”
Seeing and thereby experiencing God as He is, is the reason for the Bible, the names of God, Christ coming to Planet Earth and the Holy Spirit being poured out. Seeing Him as He is will be the ultimate key to guarding our heart against deception. Seeing Him as He is is the process of His life manifesting in me!
