The Power Of Abundant Living

What is the secret to a rich and satisfying life?

The answer is found in a relationship with a Person — the Person of Jesus.

When you know Him and draw near to Him, you will experience the abundant life He promises.

Here is the kind of life Jesus promises for you and for me —

Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures. The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
John 10:9-10 NLT

Oh what a life Jesus has for you. His life includes salvation, freedom, good pastures, spiritual bounty, and true satisfaction and contentment. Who wouldn’t love that kind of life!

And when you experience the joy of intimacy with Jesus, then others who are watching want to know what your secret to joy and contentment is. You see, hearts are restless until they find their rest in Jesus. And your life will give a message to the world. And lives will be changed.

I vividly remember watching the glowing light reflect from this mountain peak at Many Glacier, Glacier National Park, Montana, USA. It was sunrise. I was on the photographic trip of a lifetime with Nikon legend, Bill Fortney, and beloved pastor and author, Charles Stanley, as part of a His Light Workshops adventure. To me, the light on the mountain created such a breathtaking view that it held my gaze for a long time. And I have never forgotten its beauty. The image will always stay with me imprinted in my mind’ eye.

I think that’s how it is when you walk closely with Jesus and experience His life in you. People never forget what they’ve seen and they are forever impacted by the message of your life.

These thoughts of Professor James Stewart are profound to me and help me understand how God can use me as I walk intimately with Him —

If we could but show the world that being committed to Christ is no tame, humdrum, sheltered monotony – but the most exciting adventure the human spirit can ever know, those who have been standing outside the Church and looking askance at Christ will come crowding in to pay allegiance, and we may well expect the greatest spiritual revival since Pentecost.
Professor James Stewart

Do you see how powerful your abundant life with Jesus is? Not only is your life changed, but other lives will be influenced as well.

So dear friend, draw near to Jesus today. Know Him well, and open your heart to rich and satisfying life found in Him.

♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
