This is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his son (1 John 5:11).
The Lord Jesus made a profound statement when He walked this earth. He said, “For as the father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself" (John 5:12). He meant that He had the same quality of life as God. He did not need any “life supply" from the Father, for the Father had granted Him to have that life as a fountain within Him! He could now “distribute" the life to whomever He chose.
This life the Lord Jesus refers to is the same quality of life he had given to you! The Bible says, “He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life" (1 John 5:12) The CEV translation says “. . . if we have God's Son, we have this life" hallelujah! He uses the term “this life" to let you know he is talking about this special quality of life that only God has. The question is: Have you received Christ into your heart? If you have, then you have received the same life that Jesus spoke about. Like Him, you do not need any “life supply" from the father! That life has become a fountain of life within you too!
Now that you know the very life of God is in you, you must live as a champion. Distribute that life to those who are not yet born again, because, like Jesus, you are a life-giving spirit now (1 Corinthians 15:45-48). Everything you require to live a successful, victorious life is inside you. Defeat and failure belong only to the old life; the “indestructible life" of God is in you now.
