Life In Christ

“In Him was life; and the life was the light of men” (John 1:4).

A host of biochemists and other scientists have tried for over a century to determine how life evolved from nonlife. Such a quest is absurdly impossible, for the simplest imaginary self-replicating system would be infinitely more complex than the most elaborate machine ever designed by man. Life can come only from life. The first human life, indeed the first living system of any kind, could only have come by special creation from the living God. “For I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14).

Thus, “in Him we live, and move, and have our being;” and He is “not far from every one of us” (Acts 17:28,27). The Lord Jesus Christ is the one “by whom also He made the worlds” and who now is “upholding all things by the word of His power” (Hebrews 1:2,3). The beating of our hearts, the breathing of our lungs, the very atoms of our bodies, are continually sustained by Him. Were He to withdraw His power for a moment, life would cease and all light would become darkness. Even those who reject Him and blaspheme His name owe their very existence to His power and grace.

“As the Father hath life in Himself; so hath He given to the Son to have life in Himself” (John 5:26). Life is “in Him;” He alone can conquer death and raise the dead. “As the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom He will” (John 5:21), for as “the first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit” (I Corinthians 15:45).

Thus, “he that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life” (I John 5:12). Through faith in His sacrificial death and resurrection life, “ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.” Henceforth is Christ Himself “our life” (Colossians 3:3,4). HMM
