”…I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance
[to the full, till it overflows].” [John 10:10b AMP]
What’s missing in your life—what has been stolen from you—where are you giving yet never receiving—where is life being sucked out of you until you are tired, weary and wondering—where is the ‘abundance’ of life. The secret lies within you.
Abundant life is self-perpetuating, freely it receives and freely it gives. ”We have not received the spirit [life] of the world but the Spirit [life] who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.” [1 Corinthians 2:12]
Life is the power source—the well that Christ has promised to overflow—it’s not for hanging on to—there’s no lid on God’s vessel of blessing—life builds, it doesn’t work if its continually broken—you decide internally what must take place externally for abundant life to increase.
Abundant life is in the heart before it reaches your head or your hand. “Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life” [Proverbs 4:23 AMP]
Abundant life is an attitude long before it becomes an action. “That you may walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him… bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing and increasing…” [Colossians 1:120 AMP] Our forefathers fought and died for the privilege to think for ourselves, so make up your mind to live in the abundance that Christ has already given you.
