I am come that they might have life…..and that more abundantly (flood level).
Wow, isn’t this verse of scripture a sight for sore eyes! After all, that is what every human being wants: LIFE! What is life? Jesus said he came to bring abundant life; which implies that we as human beings don’t have it. No one on earth has abundant life until Jesus comes into their life and brings it to them. If we already had abundant life there would have been no need for Jesus to come.
You see this world was once a UTOPIA (which is where people get that idea from….God is the Originator). It wasn’t until Adam gave his God-given authority over to the devil that the world fell into the misery that it now is. That, however, isn’t the end of the story Jehovah promised that through the Seed of the woman the head of the serpent (the devil and all evil) will be crushed and will be no more.
The Seed of the woman is none other than Jesus Christ who I like to call the “Fulfiller”. Not only is He the Fulfillment of the Law; He is also the Fulfiller of mankind. There is no one and nothing that will ever be able to fulfill an individual like Christ can. If you’re broke….He’ll be your Paycheck. If you’re sick……He’ll be your Healer. If you’re lonely….He’ll be your Friend. If you don’t know…just know…..that He knows and faith in Christ will bring you to a level of peace that you won’t even understand (because the peace is directly from the Heart of God). This is the peace that we are to let rule our hearts. This is the peace that every Christian has.
You see if you are in Christ that simply means you don’t lack anything. It doesn’t matter where you are in life right now. You are COMPLETE IN CHRIST!!! Don’t let anyone tell you differently. There is no better position to be in than “in Christ”! He’s there when you’re up and He’s there if you fall. He’s not there to remind you of your failures….but He’s there to remind you that you are the righteousness of God and that you can do all things through Him; because He is the One who strengthens you!!!
Peter wrote that we partake of the divine nature by the exceeding great and precious promises that have been delivered to us! This is what we preach! This is what we stand on. This is why we are so successful in a world that is facing economic collapse we stand above…BECAUSE WE ARE ABOVE AND NOT BENEATH……THE HEAD AND NOT THE TAIL! Though 10,000 fall at our right and left hand the destruction that will swallow the world will not come near us. The sickness that destroys the world….will not come near us….the poverty that encompasses the world will not come near us!!!! Hallelujah to the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world!!!! This is the LIFE!
