This is still blessing me…The essence of life is JESUS. The western underlying thought of abundant living is having mansions in every other state and owning a fleet of cars. There is nothing wrong with having abundance in life. God is happy to see us walk in fullness which is centered on His sufficiency.
The only issue is our obsession for material gains and relegation of the quality of life, which only Christ gives to the attic. Wealth and wellness doesn’t define the abundant life Jesus promise us in John 10:10.
Abundant life is a life full of the fullness which emanates in us through our intimate union with Him. (Christ Jesus) Contentment in life comes as a result of the intimate knowledge or a loving relationship with a being (God) who is our sufficiency. Do you know the reason why the most wealthiest people on the planet who have not submitted to the Lordship of Christ Jesus always feels miserable, empty and unfulfilled in spite of their material wealth? The hole in the soul of every man on this side of eternity can only be filled and satisfied in our complete union with Jesus Christ through eternal life. Jesus is our eternal life. Things around us can change with time…the economy change, husbands and wife’s do change, business change, family members can change their attitude when things fall apart. Remember, everything around us change! Its only God, who remains the same…we can confidently shout from the roof top to the dark valleys when all things change, with joy in our hearts and praise on our lips. Why? Because we have the very life of God on the inside of God which doesn’t stop when the odds are against us. This is contentment…it comes from knowing Jesus.
As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. (John 17:2-3)
In Him is life!!In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:3-4)
