John 10 Verse 10:
“A thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance”.
We don’t have to wait until we die to enjoy the blessing of being God’s child. He promises that. if we live according to His guidelines for happiness, life will be better now!
What fills our lives? God promise is He has come to give us ‘life’ and we can have it in abundance. This is not an abundance of possessions to keep us happy, it is abundance of all God has for us.
What a prospect! What a future! What a hope! What a life! We shouldn’t want to change places with the wealthiest and most influential person in the world who didn’t know Christ.
We know where we have come from. We know why we are here and we know where we are going. We have life and abundance from Our Creator living in our hearts. His peace should overwhelm us, We are in Christ, and In Christ we are at peace even in the midst of problems and pain.
A quote from Francis A. Schaeffer well known author.
“There must be an absolute if there are to be Morals, and there must be an absolute if there are to be real Values. If there is no absolute beyond man’s ideas, then there is no final appeal to judge between individuals and groups where moral judgements conflict.”.
The Absolutes, we have In Christ Jesus, Love, joy, peace,patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness self control. These are absolutes we can grow in. because, we can absolutely know In Him, we have life in abundance.
