It is the spirit that vivifies; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life.
– John 6:63
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
From this verse, we can see that God’s words are the foundation of our life. Without the supply of God’s words, no matter how good the material life we enjoy is, it is of no benefit to our life. However, we are often toiling for the flesh, and think it is our proper pursuit. Some people even spend their lives pursuing fleshly enjoyment. In fact, material enjoyment only brings us spiritual emptiness and distress besides momentary pleasure, for material things cannot be man’s life. As created beings, we should listen to and obey God’s words, for God’s words are life. They are the guarantee that ensures our survival, and they are the way of life that we should seek.
Just as God says, “The way of life is not something that can be possessed by just anyone, nor is it easily obtainable by all. That is because life can only come from God, which is to say, only God Himself possesses the substance of life, there is no way of life without God Himself, and so only God is the source of life, and the ever-flowing wellspring of living water of life. From when He created the world, God has done much work involving the vitality of life, has done much work that brings life to man, and has paid a great price so that man might gain life, for God Himself is eternal life, and God Himself is the way by which man is resurrected. … God’s life force can prevail over any power; moreover, it exceeds any power. His life is eternal, His power extraordinary, and His life force not easily overwhelmed by any created being or enemy force. The life force of God exists, and shines its brilliant radiance, regardless of time or place. God’s life remains forever unchanged throughout the upheavals of heaven and earth. All things pass away, but God’s life still remains, for God is the source of the existence of all things, and the root of their existence. Man’s life originates from God, the existence of the heaven is because of God, and the existence of the earth stems from the power of God’s life. No object possessed of vitality can transcend the sovereignty of God, and no thing with vigor can break away from the ambit of God’s authority. In this way, regardless of who they are, everyone must submit under the dominion of God, everyone must live under God’s command, and no one can escape from His control.”
