The Abundant Life

John 10:10–The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.


The thief is the devil and he comes to steal our happiness, peace and everything else.  He is come to kill our relationships and bring separation from our friends and families.  He 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 sorry to say this, but 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 himself / herself.  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 seek, ask, and knock we will find it, receive it, and it will be opened to us (Matthew 5:7-8).
