Redefine Life

God is not only the author of life and how life comes to be. He also makes a way that we may have life to the fullest, making not just the reality but the quality of our life different. God doesn't just want us to exist. He wants us to thrive

The word fullness in John 10:10 means superabundant or superior; by implication, excessive. If I had to guess, this isn't what we'd classify our life as. We don't look around and think, look at my "superabundant" life. But that's what Jesus came to this earth to give us. And it's ours to have. We have to look to him to define what that exactly means. 

Leading us to our third and final point - eternal life. This is how God defined life. It's not something that begins when we die. It's something we enter into when we stop living in denial of what God has to say and start agreeing with him.

Define Life

So here we go! Kicking off our first series with the word: Life.

We're all intimately connected to the word life since it applies to us all.

However, we can live as if this word doesn't apply, going through seasons or years to come to a point you realize you weren't fully living life. It’s only when we step into life, we recognize that we weren't living it.

That's because there are two components to the word life. 1. The reality we are alive and breathing 2. The quality of the life we are breathing.

When it comes to the first component, the dictionary defines life as the "State of which natural functions and motions are performed." "The quality that distinguishes a vital and functional body from a dead body."

So if you are alive and have life, your body can function or have the capability to be renewed. Life ends when this is no longer an option.
