As I was opening my Bible this afternoon I noticed a couple of green highlights over a couple of verses at the end of the epistle to the Hebrews.
Hebrews 13 v 8 talks about Jesus Christ being the same yesterday, and today, and forever.
The Lord then said, “And that includes His will for your life” and led me to John 10 v 10.
This is of course a verse well known to me, and to you if you have been reading my DIG for a while.
Jesus said He came that people might have life, and have it more abundantly.
This life He spoke of comes form the Greek word “zoe” and means God’s kind of life, life at its best.
He also wants us not just to have this, but also to have it in abundance; the Greek word here is “perisson” and means more abundant, beyond what is anticipated, or exceedingly abundant.
Life for the followers of Jesus was meant to be very good, with healing, abundance, peace and joy flowing in their lives.
That was the will of Jesus when He came.
And Jesus has not changed; His will is the same now as when He walked on the earth.
He still wants His people to live a “zoe” life to the full, with healing, abundance, peace and joy.
That was His will then and it is His will now; that is what He came to give YOU.
It may sound arrogant, but I believe this to be the truth; as a born again believer your birthright is to live a “zoe” life of abundance as that is what Jesus came to provide.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that through the finished work of Jesus Christ you have provided life and life in abundance for me right now”.
John 10 v 10…..The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”
