4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.2 [The word, who is Jesus, is the life of God and the light of men. Christ is the light of men: the true light that enlightens every man who comes into the world, given to them so that they might believe. John 1:7,9. The life of God in measure to control men was lost for all men when Adam disobeyed God and fell. When you have crucified your sinful, selfish life and are afterward restored to the righteousness and holiness of God's image, Christ, then you live in Christ, and Christ lives in you, controlling all your words and deeds; and this life is then eternal. Eternal life is to be a new creature in Christ on earth and forever.]
6 Then Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father, but by me. [The only way to reconciliation with God is through obedience to the heart and soul purifying grace of Jesus. He reveals all truth, about yourself and the mysteries of God. He is the light of men and the life of God, to which you must be restored in the righteousness and holiness of God's image, Jesus Christ.]
|John 11:25 |
25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection, and the life. He who believes in me, although he might die, yet he shall live."
