The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
Jesus Promises Life
Jesus came to give you life. Not just life, but abundant life, overflowing life, unending life. Life that knows no limits. The word “abundant” means “far beyond that which is necessary.”
The abundant life Jesus promised is not only a quantity of life but a quality of life. Abundant life is for here and also for all of eternity
Abundant Life is Eternal Life
Abundant life is eternal life. There is no fear of death for the Christian. We know that when we close our eyes in death, we open them in the presence of God. We will spend eternity in His presence, enjoying the wonders of heaven. We know He has prepared a place for each one of us to inhabit and enjoy one day. You don’t have to fear death because Jesus has promised you eternal life.
But we don’t have to wait for heaven to experience the abundant life that Jesus promised. The abundant life begins the day we give our heart to Christ. Abundant life isn’t just heaven when we die, but a quality of life right here and now.
As our good shepherd, Jesus gives us full satisfaction, perfect guidance, and complete protection.
It doesn’t mean we will never face a struggle or a problem. But in the midst of our difficulties, we know He is there, guiding and protecting us.
Love, Joy, and Peace
The first three fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, and peace. A life filled with love, joy, and peace is abundant life.
Jesus came for you to live life to the fullest. So many Christians spend their life feeling guilty and ashamed. They have forgotten or have never been told that Jesus came to give them overflowing abundant life.
Today, embrace the abundant life Jesus promised.
Look at that promise again:
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. – John 10:10
Confess this with me:
In Jesus Christ, I have abundant life.
Eternal, unending life when I die, and overflowing life from day to day.
He is my protection, my guide, and my provider.
Today I will live in the abundant life Jesus promised.
In Jesus Name, Amen
As we begin 2021 I am praying you live in the abundant life Jesus promise. I am praying you experience all God has for you in 2021.
