Zoe (pronounced dzo’ ay) is a small Greek word with a big meaning. Simply put, Zoe means life. Not just life as we think of it (living or being alive), but the word Zoe means eternal life, never-ending life, God’s life. Zoe is life as God has in Himself! The God kind of life!
John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the Word…and the word was God.” John 1:4 says, “In Him (the word, Jesus) was life (Zoe!).” 1 John 5:11-12 says, “…God has given us eternal life (Zoe) and this life (Zoe) is in His Son (Jesus). He that has the Son (Jesus) has life (Zoe), and he that has not the Son of God (Jesus) has not life (Zoe).
If you have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you have Zoe, life, God’s life inside of you. The same life that is in God is in you! You can truly say with Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (with His life!).” If you have never received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you do not have this life in you. Is there any reason you can’t receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior right now?
