The Abundant Life

John 10:10–“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.


The thief is the devil–He comes to steal our happiness, peace and everything else.  The thief is come to kill our relationships and bring separation from our friends and families.  The thief is come to destroy our lives and opportunities.

Jesus is come that we might have eternal, everlasting life–Jesus is come that we might experience this eternal, everlasting life to its fullest.  I am afraid that most Christians don’t experience this life in its abundance.  It has been made available for all but it is up to each Christian to receive it for themselves.  Many don’t have the joy of their salvation or the peace of God that passes all understanding.  The abundant life is found in the fullness of the Spirit.  If we ask for it, it will be given to us.  If we seek it, we shall find it.  If we knock, it will be opened to us.  Jesus said, “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (Matthew 5:7-8).  God bless you.
