You Have Abundant Life

February 4, 2019

Scripture Promise: John 10:10
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

Jesus came to give you life. Not just life, but abundant life, overflowing life, everlasting life; a 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 all of eternity, and the here and now.

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 will open them in the presence of God. We will spend eternity with God enjoying the wonders of heaven. We know He has prepared a special place for each one of us. You don’t have to fear death because Jesus has promised you eternal life.

But you don’t have to wait for heaven to experience the abundant life. The abundant life began the day you gave your 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 full satisfaction, perfect guidance, and complete protection.

It doesn’t mean you will never face a struggle or problem, but in the midst of your difficulties, you will know He is there guiding and protecting you.

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 to give you life to the fullest. So many Christians spend their life feeling guilty and ashamed. They have forgotten or have never heard that Jesus came to give them overflowing abundant life.

Today, embrace the abundant life Jesus promised.

Look at the 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.
