A Satisfying Life

14 09 2011

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.  John 10:10 (New Living Translation)

I often think about God and His gift of His Son to us.  Jesus came that we might have an abundant life.  When I think about God’s abundance, I imagine having more than enough. An overflowing supply of the fruits of the Holy Spirit: peace, joy, love, patience, kindness, gentleness and self-control.  This translation describes it as a rich and satisfying life. Another says that He came that we might have everything that we need.

What an indescribable blessing!  This journey into abundance begins with accepting His Son and grows as we mature in our walk with Him. Wherever we are along the path, I believe there is always more available to us based on our walk with Him. As we pray, give praise, study His word and walk in His ways, I believe this satisfying life grows.  I am so thankful for a risen Savior and that each of us can begin this journey when we open our hearts to Him.
