It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.
Scripture distinguishes between bios and zoe. Bios is the sort of life you got from your mom and dad. Zoe is the life of God, a life that is not only eternal, but more, well, lifeful. The Holy Spirit makes bios. But he communicated zoe. Why? Because is only like the life of God as a statue is like a living man. But zoe is the life of God and the Holy Spirit give it to us so that we become “participants in the divine nature”. Today, ask the Holy Spirit for life!
