“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in thine heart that God raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” ~ Romans 10:9
When Jesus was raised from the dead it brought us life! The Greek language calls it zoe which means, “life in the absolute sense as God has it, that which the Father has in Himself, and which He gave to the Son to have in Himself.” That’s the kind of life God gave us when we were raised from the death of our sins. We were given something which the Bible calls eternal life.
Eternal life is not just a time span, but it’s a quality of life. It’s the highest kind of life that’s available. Jesus, at the Cross, swallowed up all death had to offer and it wasn’t enough to keep Him dead, because there was so much life in Him! He’s called the Author of Life. It just was not possible for death to hold Him. His resurrection changed everything for us. It has enabled us to walk free from the power of death, and to be able to enjoy the kind of life that God Himself has!
