Jesus the LIFE…What about God, where’s his Life?

This post has already been read 28 times!

Have you ever thought about this? I’m sure you have.

In him (Jesus) was life; and the life was the light of men (John 1:20)… his son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life (1 John 5:20). That which we have seen and heard of the “word of life,” “the life” which was manifested; that “eternal life” which was with the father was manifested unto us (1 John 12).

Jesus calls himself “eternal life!”  Obviously there cannot be the life of the Father and the life of the Son. Whose life would you have? Both can’t be two separate source of life can they? So why does the Son have the life and why is he the Life and why is his life the light of men, I mean why doesn’t the Father give us his life, after all he’s God isn’t  he?

Maybe that light is Jesus himself. The creator, the Father of lights,  and himself the everlasting Father (Isaiah 9;6 Ja 1:16). Maybe we’ve forgotten the Son didn’t stay Son all his life.  What he is now is what he’s always been from the beginning “God!” the light that was with the father is himself the father!

Just thinking standing up.

    Lovely thought of the Day Paul. Christ in us the hope of Glory, the hope of eternity in Him, the Hope of being Lights unto the world, the Truth in Us, “The Way” in us as we try to bring our lost brothers and sister back to Christ. He truly is the Way, the truth and the Life. In Him there is eternity. In Him we become eternal beings and with Him we become filled l with living waters as He breathes in us again and again and again with His words of Truth.God Bless you.Sherline 😀

    Interesting thought. I’m still trying to wrap my little brain around this one. Since I’ve always had trouble explaining, and understanding the trinitarian nature of God, even though I accept it as one of God’s mysteries that I hope to understand some day.There are myriad qualities given to the Son, He’s known as the Word, the Light of the world, the Messiah, the Son of God, and so much more we’ve yet to discover. My mind finds comfort from the difficulty in understanding such a mystery on this side of heaven in 1 Corinthians 13:12, “For now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then shall I know even as I am also known.” Someday, I’ll know; for now, there is faith.

    Without the light how would we see? Light makes the darkness go away. Light enhances our vision and perception. Good Word! Be Blessed!

    Greetings sister many thanks for conencting today, glad you found the post interesting… yes I like to use the word “Godhead” which as you know is the bible world for Father Son and Spirit ( The word “trinity” as you know is not in the bible) The “Godhead” is so simply to understand when we take this approach…. God with us….God becoming flesh and so becoming a son (1 Timothy 3:16 )…the Godhead dwelling in Jesus (Colossians 2;9). This means he, Jesus is not in the Godhead but rather that the Godhead is in him. He was God in human flesh (John 1:1,14). To illustrate further. Just as I am both a father and Son so too Jesus is both Son and everlasting father (Isaiah 9:6).I like to say it like this, “Immanuel “God” with us!” not Immanuel son with us, although yes, he did become a Son.( If you have a kindle the ebooks I have give more in depth study onthis fabulous subject… see also http://www.paulbthomas.netHave a fantastic dayBro Paul
