A Life of Plenty (June 7, 20110)

John 10:10

The thief cometh not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life; and that they might have it more abundantly.

If we were to define the word "abundantly" it means to abound which is to say having a plenty of something or to abound in something, which again is to overflow with something 1 Thessalonians 3:12; Proverbs 28:20).

Our lesson study focus is on having life more abundantly, which is living life in its fullness, not referring to material possessions, but a full life in Christ Jesus. All believers have an abundance of His love, grace and mercy, which overflows our cup daily. It is a blessing to have a good shepherd (v 10) that gave His life for His sheep (humanity) and then lead us to an abundant life one where we will spend eternity with Him.

Let me just say that no one can have this abundant life neither will one know and or experience the fullness of life apart from Jesus Christ our Savior and His indwelling-Spirit (John 10:14-15; Romans 8:1-2, 9-11). Who else but Christ would lay down His life for sinful man? Who else can, will and does provide for all humanity's needs? Only the good shepherd Jesus Christ (v 11).

With that being said, the question now becomes, What must one do to have an abundant life? Accept Jesus Christ as his or her personal Savior. He is more than enough.
