The Abundant Life
I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10 NKJV
When Jesus talks of the abundant life, is He talking about material riches or earthly fame? Hardly. The Son of God came to this world, not to give it prosperity, but to give it salvation. Thankfully for Christians, our Savior's abundance is both spiritual and eternal; it never falters - even if we do - and it never dies. We need only to open our hearts to Him, and His grace becomes ours.
God's gifts are available to all, but they are not guaranteed; those gifts must be claimed by those who CHOOSE to follow Christ. As believers, we are free to accept God's gifts, or not; that choice, and the consequences that result from it, are ours and ours alone.
As we go about our daily lives, may we accept God's promise of spiritual abundance, and may we share it with a world in desperate need of the Master's healing touch.
