Abundant Life

"I have come so you can have life and life in abundance," Jesus said.

Abundant life is having enough for your life and extra so you can help with the needs of other people. This is the eternal life that Jesus offers when he says, "God loved the world so that he gave his only Son so you can have eternal life."

Eternal life starts with life in this present world. We do not have to wait until we die. What we must do is accept the sacrificial work of Christ and make Him our Lord. From that moment we are sons of God living according to the norms of the kingdom of his Son, Jesus Christ. Instead of living with the curses of the sinner, enslaved by the Devil, now we live with the blessings of the sons of God. Let's celebrate and enjoy life in abundance.
