“…I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
(John 10:10, NKJV)
Abundant Life Today
Are you living the abundant life Jesus came to give? I’m not talking about living in the fanciest house or driving the newest car. No, His promise of abundant life goes way beyond material things that this world offers. Abundant life means “life to the full.” That means no matter what is going on around you, you stay in faith because you know God is still in control.
It means having peace in the midst of a storm, being able to sleep at night, and having good relationships. You can have joy when things are uncertain.
It’s easy to look at that verse and think, “God is going to give me abundant life someday.” But the truth is that God wants you to have abundant life TODAY! Don’t waste another second living in mediocrity or settling for less than God’s best. No, it’s time to shake off that barely-get-by attitude and let go of what didn’t work out. Instead, make room to receive His hope, joy, strength and favor. Declare that you are living the abundant life every day!
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, so that I can have eternal life. I know that You want the best for me. Help me to keep my heart and mind focused on You so that I can walk in Your ways all the days of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
