I have come that they may have life,
and that they may have it more abundantly.
John 10:10 NKJV
The 10th chapter of John tells us that Christ came to earth so that our lives might be filled with abundance.
But what, exactly, did Jesus mean when He promised “life . . . more abundantly”? Was He referring to material possessions or financial wealth? Hardly. Jesus offers a different kind of abundance: a spiritual richness that extends beyond the temporal boundaries of this world. This everlasting abundance is available to all who seek it and claim it. May we, as believers, claim the riches of Christ Jesus every day that we live, and may we share His blessings with all who cross our path.
The only way you can experience abundant life is to surrender your plans to Him. - Charles Stanley, 100 Days of Prayer
Jesus wants Life for us, Life with a capital L. - John Eldredge
The man who lives without Jesus is the poorest of the poor, whereas no one is so rich as the man who lives in His grace. - Thomas à Kempis
If you want purpose and meaning and satisfaction and fulfillment and peace and hope and joy and abundant life that lasts forever, look to Jesus. - Anne Graham Lotz
Dear Lord, You have offered me the gift of abundance through Your Son. Thank You, Father, for the abundant life that is mine through Christ Jesus. Let me accept His gifts and use them always to glorify You. Amen
