As ALWAYS, I'm feverishly working on NEW MUSIC today in PB Studios!  The plan is to record vocals for my cover of TO HELL WITH THE DEVIL by Stryper!  Yup, it's gonna be a load of fun!  I'm also anxiously awaiting tracks from long-time friend and Pastor Brad guest artist -- Jeff Garner who is--possibly at this very moment--laying some KILLER lead guitar lines on an INSTRUMENTAL version of WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS, scheduled for release this Christmas!  But wait-----THERE'S MORE!  I have created -- what think -- are some KILLER playlists on SPOTIFY.  I created special links below featuring each one---CHECK EM' OUT!

A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD:
There are a couple Greek words translated "LIFE" in the New Testament. One is BIOS, which means "physical or earthly life."  This is where we get BIOLOGY, the study of physical life.

Luke 8:14
“And that which fell into the thorns, these are those who heard and, going away, are utterly choked by anxieties and riches and pleasures of this LIFE (BIOS), and do not bring any fruit to maturity."

But ZOE (pronounce "zoe-ae") is a totally different kind of life.  Zoe is God-life, spiritual life, it's sometimes translated as "eternal life" (John 3:16).  Here are a couple of super cool, and super important, ZOE life verses.
 
John 11:25

"Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the LIFE (ZOE). The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;"

John 14:6
"Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the LIFE (ZOE). No one comes to the Father except through me.'"

There are lots more--but here's the deal.  Our BIOS life has an expiration date.  It's called death and it's non-negotiable.  But Christ offers us real, Spirit, forever--ZOE life, if we will put our faith in Him and follow Him as Lord and Savior!  This is why Jesus could say and literally mean, "The one who believes in me will live, even though they die."  Yes, your BIOS will end, but if you know Christ, your God-given ZOE will continue right on for eternity!  This is why Paul could say...

Philippians 1:21
"For to me, to LIVE (ZOE) is Christ and to die is gain."

Whoo-hoo!  So take hold of life that is TRULY ZOE LIFE -- in CHRIST today and ZOE!

80s Christian Metal Blessings!
