10 speaks of having life more abundantly. Some think
that trusting Christ as their personal Savior is all
that they need to do. Trusting Christ as Savior is the
most important decision one can make, however, the Lord
did not intend for it to stop there. He designed it that
we may have an abundant Christian life.
Satan, the greatest thief known to mankind, will steal
as much from you as he can. If he can steal you away and
keep you bound for Hell he will. If you say that you
have assurance of your salvation and you know that you
will be in Heaven then he will steal the thoughts from
your mind and convince you that trusting Christ is
enough. Let me ask you a question. Is that enough for
came into this world that you might have eternal life.
But there is another part of the plan that you must not
overlook. He came not only to give you life; He wants
you to have abundant life. Abundant means more than
overflowing; more than we desire for ourselves. Are you
living your life to its fullness?
Abundant life is more than attending church on a weekly
basis. It is more than serving as a deacon or as a
Sunday School teacher. It is even more than being a
pastor. Abundant life is not fulfilling some religious
duty; you cannot substitute activity for spirituality.
Christ desires so much more for your life than you
desire for yourself. I find it hard to even imagine, as
much as God has blessed me that He desired to bless me
even more than He has. Ask the Lord to help you start
living your life more abundantly.
