he thief comes only to steal, slaughter, and destroy. I have come that they might have life, and have it abundantly! - John 10:10
When you trusted in Yeshua you were born-again to win. Yeshua said, “I came to give life and life abundantly.” Let me Geek or Greek out just for a second. That phrase, “life abundantly” comes from one Greek word perissos and it means simply, “whatever goes beyond the normal, the expected amount.” In other words, it would be like taking your child to Baskin Robins to get ice-cream and they look at you and say, “Can I have one scoop or two scoops of ice-cream dad? And you say, “I did not bring you here to give you just one scoop or two scoops, I brought you here to give you all the ice-cream in the store with all the toppings you could ever imagine. Have as much as you want, as often as you want. I am giving you ice-cream in abundance.” That is the super-abundant life Yeshua promises to all who trust in Him.
However, many people only see one side of the abundant life. That is the eternal side. And the eternal side is amazing! It is a gift of indescribable proportions. Yet, we did not just get born-again to get heaven only but also to experience abundant life here on earth. When I was in at Dallas Theological Seminary working on Master of Theology one of my professors pointed out that religion always focuses on eternity and atheism always focuses on reality but the Gospel says that if you have been born again then you have abundant life in eternity and in reality, right now.
May the Lord God of Israel’s hope fill you with His abundant life. May you experience the joy of knowing the abundant life of eternal life and the abundant life He offers right now. May your cup truly run over with blessing from now until forever.
