Life-Giver 

1 Timothy 6:13

I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things…

What business is God in? That question arose recently by a student of the marketplace. How would you have answered?

When you consider everything that the Triune God has done, is doing, and yet will do, how would you summarize HIS role from a business perspective?

I would start-out by asking what is the one thing only HE can do? The answer: create life.

Therefore, in my book HE is in the business of bring life to others. And life comes in different forms. There is physical life of animals and plants along with amoebas and other under the microscope critters. Of course, the greatest of all his life-giving creations is humanity. He created them male and female after HIS image is how the Book of Genesis factually states the obvious.

But not only does HE create life, HE also sustains it. He created a Big Bang which produced multiple galaxies with solar systems and chose one large rock from the sun to reform into a life-setting for humanity to reside on. This planet is a living science project with its own specific measurements all synchronized for humans to live-out their purpose.

Of course, HIS purpose for creating life is more than for his entertainment. HIS strategic plan from the beginning was to procreate a family of “little Christs” who would spend eternity with HIM working in HIS business which the Bible calls the Kingdom of God.

The apostle Paul writes that from the foundation of the world GOD intentionally plan to morph humans into spiritual beings after the likeness of Jesus Christ. The apostle John wrote in Revelations that God is preparing kings and priests who will govern and serve the people in the millennium and beyond.

God is our Life-Giver. Through Jesus Christ, HE has demonstrated what and how life is to be lived, plus secured the means for entrance into HIS royal chamber. He has given us written policies and procedures outlined throughout the Bible which when followed and practiced leads to real freedom, flourishment, and fulfillment in this season of life; and more importantly, will lead to eternal life where all we learn and experience now will be put into practice working under HIS government.

Below are a few Scriptures that emphasize God’s life-giving attributes. You may want to conduct your own study. You may find it reassuring and uplifting to know you are included in God’s macro plan of sharing life with others today as HE shares HIS life with you now and into the eternal future.

 Deuteronomy 30:19

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live,

John 6:35

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.

John 6:63

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.

John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

John 11:25

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,

John 20:31

but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

1 Corinthians 15:45

Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

God is a Life-Giver. And HE wants you to have the full impact of experiencing life the way HE does. So HE gave us HIS Spirit to live in us. Learn to walk and dance with HIM, and you will come to know what a great and precious gift life is in HIM.

What is God Like?

Colossians 1:15 (AMP)

15 He (Jesus) is the exact living image [the essential manifestation] of the unseen God [the visible representation of the invisible], the firstborn [the preeminent one, the sovereign, and the originator] of all creation. 

Yep, if you want to know what the invisible God is like, then study the life and person of Jesus Christ. Like the apostle Paul writes in his letter to the Colossians, Jesus is the full representative of God Almighty.

Paul writes emphasizing Jesus’ status from the beginning of creation through now being the life-source of the body of believers, and his position and purpose over heaven and earth.

Jesus’ is the total representation of who and what and how God relates, moves, thinks, and acts between people and events. When you study Jesus’ attitude, beliefs, and actions we capture a deeper glimpse into the heart and mind of God Himself.

I remember once waking up at 2:00am upset over conditions in the world and praying God would send someone to intervene. Then it occurred to me HE already did and will return to straighten out the mess us humans have the habit of continually creating in our ignorance and stupidity.

So, if you haven’t done yet, why not make it a goal this year to read and reread the New Testament and discover more for yourself who God is like through the words, teachings, and life of Jesus Christ.

Why Jesus Christ?

2 Corinthians 4:5

For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.

Why Jesus Christ?

What makes Him so special?

Why bother to investigate HIS life?

In short, as a Christian, I believe HE is the Christ (Messiah of the Old Testament) prophesied to lead Israel and Gentiles (all humanity) into one worldwide ruling government which will last forever. 

His claims and life were written down and preserved for you and I to examine the evidence and prove or disprove the facts.

Like many who have gone before me, after study and investigation, I have accepted Him as my Lord and Savior.

I have come to believe as witnessed in the life of others and/or myself:

  • He restored mankind’s direct relationship with the Creator God sacrificing his vicarious life for all people from all tribes and nations.
  • He is alive as the first new human – a resurrected being with a new body combining the spiritual with physical.
  • He has promised to return and fulfill God’s plan for mankind by combining heaven and earth into one new world order.
  • His ways outline the real values and macro purpose to build a solid foundation for your life to stand upon.
  • HE is the best mentor and partner one will ever have to help you realize real freedom, flourishment, and fulfillment for yourself and others.
  • He is the incarnate God.

So, if you haven’t yet investigated the facts for yourself, whether or not you are scared to discover the truth and change your life for the better, why not put God to the test? I did. And so have many of you. What we have discovered is HE has proven HIMSELF over and over again HE is who HE claims to BE.

So, if you haven’t yet taken the time to truly investigate the evidence yourself, why not begin this year?

Below are a few more Scriptures referring to how the early Church regarded Jesus.

John 1:41

He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means Christ).

Acts 2:36

Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.”

Acts 18:28

for he (Saul) powerfully refuted the Jews in public, showing by the Scriptures that the Christ was Jesus.

Acts 9:22

But Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who lived in Damascus by proving that Jesus was the Christ.

Galatians 3:28

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 1:5

he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will,

Ephesians 3:6

This mystery is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.
