“The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.” John 10:10
Jesus came to give us life and life in abundance. But what does that look like?
Our answer to that question given through the eyes of this world will say it means more wealth, perfect health and having literally everything within our reach. But our answer given through the eyes of eternity will tell us otherwise.
You will find that the very breath that you breathe is a gift from God. The very fact that He awakened you to a new morning filled with fresh mercies is in fact living in abundance.
When everything seems to be in total chaos and the storms of life rage around you, having His peace is what it means to have life in abundance. When you feel you have no direction, having the Word of God speaking direction and hope to you in your time of need is having life in abundance.
When sadness rushes in, having His joy poured over you is life in abundance. Truly there is nothing or no one on this earth that can offer what only Jesus came to give, for what He gives is eternal.
His mercies flow freely, His love spills out endlessly.
This is life in abundance.
