My three lives.

Posted by appolus on December 26, 2020

Jesus is the bridge between two worlds. The seen and the unseen. The seen world relies upon the head, the unseen world relies upon the eyes of the heart. Our senses, as great as they are, can only serve us in the seen world. Any interaction with the unseen world must come through the prism of our spirit/heart. Not the physical heart you understand. The physical heart pumps life giving blood in a somewhat mystical way, but the Spirit is the wellspring of a substance called life.

In this context I am talking about the Scriptural word Zoe. An example of this would be John 1:4 “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.” This life is the divine life of God in man. This is the abundant life of John 10:10. Jesus had come so that we may have a superabundant never-ending wellspring of divine life in us. This is the divine life that flows through the supernatural heart of a man or a woman.

When this life is flowing through us it comes crashing into interaction with the life that we can see, the seen world. Our life in this world, our actual physical lives is described in the Scriptures by this word, Bios. It is where we get our word biology from and an example from Scriptures would be Luke 8:14 ‘with cares and riches and pleasures of this life.” And the context is the seed that fell among thorns.

Anxieties and worries and cares, all drowning the life, Zoe, divine health, out of us. One has to go. Divine life and the cares of this world cannot co-exist and so those walking in the divine life of God rise above the cares and the anxieties of this world. They can “see,’ the truth that lies in the unseen world and it can be used to over-ride the senses that so dominate this world.

The last use of the world life in the Scriptures comes in the form of this word, Psuche and the Scriptural example would be Matt 16:25 “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.” This of course is not referring to your physical life, that would be the word Bios. This word psuche is referring to your soul/spirit. Your soul/spirit will come into its own when it is infused by the life(Zoe) of God through the Spirit of God.

God will “breath,’ into you and it will abundantly overcome all other life in you and your actual physical life. So brothers and sisters, what “life,” dominates your life? Zoe? Bios? Psuche? Zoe life is the life of God flowing in us. It is the light of men living in a dark world. We cannot be light to the world or a city set upon a hill if we are not dominated by the Zoe life of God.
