I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. - John 10:10 NKJV
Abundant life. Do you have it? Jesus said that He had come so that His followers could have life and have it more abundantly. What does that mean to you?
In addition to the eternal life we have through believing on Jesus Christ for salvation, we can also have a life on earth much richer than we can ever expect without Him. Through the power of the Holy Spirit working in our lives we can possess the qualities of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, patience, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Gal 5:22-23). These qualities alone would affect so many people in our lives for good.
But what about the eternal impact for good we can have through a life of service to Christ? When we minister to others in service to God, we not only reap blessings on earth, but we reap an ability to experience eternal life to the fullest. (Gal 6:8) And the good thing is, God is right beside us to help us serve Him.
When was the last time you reached out to serve God with your talents and abilities by enriching the life of someone else? Do you feel that God is calling you to be a blessing? If He is, knowing that He will help you in anything He asks of you, what are you waiting for? Abundant life is yours for the taking.
