Christ Gives Life

John 3:7 Do not marvel that I said to you, You must be born anew. 5:8-9 ...Rise, take up your mat and walk. And immediately the man became well, 6:35...I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall by no means hunger

A few examples in the Gospel of John of Christ giving life: In Chapter three, there is a religious person named Nicodemus. The Lord showed him that what was wrong with him was not his outward, wrong behavior, but a wrong life that he had. What he needed was another life-- the divine life. This religious man had been born once of the human life, but now he needed to be born again of another life. The divine life does not improve our own life but regenerates us with another life. In chapter five an impotent [paralyzed] man was lying by a pool in Jerusalem. Around him were the holy city, the holy feast, the holy temple, and the holy sabbath, and the miracle waters. But in spite of all these so-called holy things of the highest religion, the man lay impotent there for thirty- eight years; he did not have the strength required for him to be healed. When Jesus saw him, He spoke to him the word of life and the man was healed. This is a picture of the divine life enlivening man and enabling man to do what religion cannot do. In Chapter six the Jews boasted about the manna that their ancestors ate in the wilderness. But Christ told them that He is the real manna and the bread of life, and that those who eat Him will not hunger anymore. A person who eats any earthly or physical bread will hunger again, even if that bread is a miracle sent from God. Only the heavenly bread, the Lord Jesus Christ, will satisfy a person and cause him to hunger no more.
