The above words of the Lord Jesus tell us among other wonderful things, that He is: "the life ..." Everyone is striving to make for themselves a life that is worth living. Most people feel that they have to succeed at something and be the best version of themselves that they possibly can be. Well, of course there isn't anything wrong with trying to do our best and achieve the highest we can, but it all goes wrong when that is our soul goal. Without the ability to see beyond the 'here and now' to the 'there and then'.
But when you know that all is well with your soul; when you understand that life is more than just getting through the phases of living, then you will see that the life of Jesus filling yours is what life is really all about!
