“Life is defined to man but the amount of light that he receives” 

Man has looked for what he calls life and has not found it, even some that claim to find it take up a shadow form of life. Whatever is being made known to man has life and he has also been tutored to believe in it and die for it. But not too many die for the true life even when it means their all but what does the scriptures call our life?

Colossians  3:4 WHEN CHRIST, WHO IS OUR LIFE, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Boldly written it says “when Christ, Who is our life” it tells that the life of man is Christ and we see boldly from God’s word that every family on earth is named by the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ 

Ephesians  3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,  

3:15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

So it’s clear that we are all named by the Father and the meaning of a Father is Sustainer or Provider. We then understand that through Christ we have life and that Jesus is an heir of God and we are joint-heir with him 

Romans  8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:  

8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

And then God has given Him to have life in Himself. 

John  5:26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

Understanding that the life God gave Jesus is what defines life to Him, because a life given will always define a life to live for man. We can’t live outside of the measure of the life that we have within  it channel our course towards every other things we may be responsible to. So remember that Christ is your life, Christ is my life and Christ is our life. We live after the counsel of the life within us. God bless you.
