—John 10:10b (NIV)
How can anyone not believe that God is generous? He lavished His love on us at Calvary. He gives abundant life for earth, and abundant life for eternity. This is the reason He came. To give His life for us! To give joyful life instead of depression and heartache! To give victory over fear! To impart peace in the midst of turmoil! To bring fulfillment!
Jesus Christ came so that we may know overflowing abundant life in Him. He gave His life for that purpose. He sacrificed all the innocence that He was for all the ugliness that we are. He is the vine that empowers, and we are the branches. When the life of the vine flows into ours, it brings new growth. We flourish in His presence. Our being is one with His.
Whatever you might face today, He has already given victory. He is peace, joy, strength, power, healing, patience, forgiveness! He is everything you cannot be alone. He is all you lack. His life flowing through you is all you need. Look to Him, the author of your faith, and take courage. It is only in Christ that you can have supernatural peace, overflowing strength, unending power, total healing, enduring patience, and humbling forgiveness. But you must allow Him to be Lord of every part of your life. Then and only then will His life accomplish the miraculous in yours.
He is abundant life! He is your purpose, and your promise. This is the reason He came. For you.
