What Is Abundant Life?

Jesus said that He came to give life.  Not just any kind of life, but abundant life.  The question that we have to ask ourselves is what that is exactly.  Where can we find the answer?

It might help us to take a look at what Jesus said just before this.  He said that the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy.  The thief does not come to bring anything good into anyone’s life.  He only seeks to take away, to end life, to leave nothing in his wake.

Jesus, on the other hand, opposes this.  He comes to do the exact opposite.

He comes to give.  Life.  Abundant life.

He comes to make alive.  To bring those who are dead back to life.

He comes to restore.  To renew.  To recreate.

Have you had everything taken away from you?  Jesus comes to give back to you.

Have you realized that you are dead?  Jesus wants to make you alive.

Has everything in your life been destroyed?  Jesus will restore you to greater things than you ever had.

What is abundant life?  It is a gift that brings you back to life and recreates you into what you were intended to be.

It is what Jesus offers.

Do you have abundant life?

    I do in a ton of areas of my life. There is one however that I don’t have it yet. I know Jesus but my struggle gets the best of me more times than I would like.
