2 Kings 4:34 (NIV) ~ Then he got on the bed and lay upon the boy, mouth to mouth, eyes to eyes, hands to hands. As he stretched himself out upon him, the boy’s body grew warm.

In 2 Kings 4:35, the Bible goes on to say, “Elisha turned away and walked back and forth in the room and then got on the bed and stretched out upon him once more. The boy sneezed seven times and opened his eyes.” Before this took place, Gahazi, the servant of Elisha has taken the staff of Elisha, and in faith, placed it upon the boy’s face, but there was no response. This brings me to this thought, “Where faith and authority does not reach, (ZOE) LIFE always will.” As Elisha lay on the boy’s body, mouth to mouth, eyes to eyes and hands to hands, he was imparting life to the body of the boy, from God. There is also another example of this from Acts 20:10 (NIV), furthermore, everyone Jesus Christ touched with His (ZOE) Life were healed, set free and raised up.

This kind of life can only be found through God, it is the ZOE life, it is eternal and life-giving power. The Bible says in John 10:10 (NIV), “I have come that you may have life and have it to the full,” or, as the KJV Bible says, “…life more abundantly.” The Bible says in Romans 8:11 (NIV), “And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.” His life lives in you; it is a life-giving power. His life flows with energy, purpose and power; it is this kind of life that gives you life. In Jesus, and through His Divine power, He has given you everything you need for life. It is a gift from God to have life in Jesus that empowers you to live life more abundantly.

My friend, let the life-giving power of Jesus Christ flow through you. For in Him you live and move and have your being. In Him you have life to live life. Each and every day you have a divine opportunity to impart life to whoever you meet, to bring the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ to their life by the power of the Holy Spirit who lives in you. To have a positive winning attitude, to smile, to be kind, and to love more than necessary are all ZOE life qualities that you can impart to people every day. Today, live life in Jesus and let His life-giving power flow through you.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
