and that they might have it more abundantly.


For He is the GOD of the living.

but of the living: 

for all live unto him.


If we have JESUS, we have LIFE.

and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

I am the resurrection,

shall never die

and not die.

51 I am the living bread 

which came down from heaven: 

if any man eat of this bread, 

he shall live for ever: 

and the bread that I will give is my flesh, 

which I will give for the life of the world.
