Zchurch Service for April, 10, 2021
Z in Zchurch stands for zoe which is the life and nature of God.
Three Greek words for life: bios – corresponding with the environment; psych – a psychological life, our thoughts and feelings; zoe – the God kind of life. God
John 10:10 – The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I am come that they might have life (zoe) and that they might have it more abundantly.
Church without Zoe is nothing but mere religion. When the Zoe life of God comes into you, it changes everything!
Two words unlock the Bible: life and death.
John 5:24 – Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
Zoe life will effect the way you live or make a living.
The moment Adam disobeyed God, he died. He died spiritually. Death passed upon all men. Everyone was doomed through Adam.
1 Cor. 15:22 – For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
Either we have the life of God in us or we don’t. People who have not received the Zoe life of God are dead. The heart of man becomes alive when the Zoe life of God comes in.
Romans 5:17 For if by one man’s offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
When you step into the Zoe of God, it begins to dominate everything in your world and change everything in your world.
John 5:26 – For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.
John 1:12 – But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
The physical and biological life is eclipsed by the Zoe life of God. The Zoe life of God will heal you. Dunamis zoe – life force.
Mark 5:24-28 – And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him. 25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, 26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, 27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. 28 For she said, if I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
Zoe is not just for you; it is for people around you. You are a vessel that God uses to take Zoe to people. We lay hands on the sick so that Zoe is transferred from us to them, and it is a real life force.
Jesus said, “Out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water. (John 7:38) Meditate on the Zoe of God. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. (John 1:4) Because you’re in Christ, you’re in Zoe. The Zoe life will cause you to overcome.
Romans 8:11 – But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
The Zoe of God will cause you to have zero poverty, zero sickness, zero shame, zero doubt and zero tolerance for the devil!
The Zoe life of God will enhance everything you do.
…the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. (2 Cor. 3:6)
