Live life Abundantly!

If I asked you what it means to live an abundant life, I probably would get many different answers. But no matter how you would define it, (Exciting, successful, adventurous, fulfilling etc) there can be very little that matters in life without having peace, joy and love.
It seems life itself can drain us of these 3 and so much more.

John 10:10 says:

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

Jesus warns us to be on guard for thieves of who want to rob us of what God has for us. Since the time of Adam and Eve God has been wanting us to enjoy abundant life. A life of peace, joy and love. However, since Adam and Eve, Satan began trying to convince people that God/religion would be holding them back from a full life. Since that time people have had to make a choice who to believe. God or Satan.

When we chose not to believe God, we are in essence believing the lies of the devil and we are forfeiting the abundant life God wants for us. Adam and Eve’s disobedience of God robbed them of all that they had and could have had. They lived with a fraction of what they were intended. Ever since that first decision man has been trying to “win back” the abundant life that he was intended to have. The world seeks to convince you can find fulfillment through your own efforts. The world will tell you that you can find abundant life if you adopt its standard of morality for your marriage, raising your children, advancing your career, and/or pursuing pleasure. 
Instead all that you gain is a life that is broken and transitory and empty. It is tragic to listen to voices of the world instead of the one who created life and wants you to experience life to the fullest.

Jesus wants you to live life to with the security and fullness that come by walking with Him. Giving your life to Jesus and choosing Him will allow you to receive all that He has for you. Peace, Love, and joy! If you are living life without these things you are settling for less than what God has promised to give if you will turn to Him and walk with Him. If you are making excuses of why you are not experiencing abundant and joyful life, determine today to settle for nothing less than God’s best for your life. Stop following the way of the World and Walk with the Maker, giver and restorer of Life; both abundant life in this world and in the next.

His name is Jesus Christ
