Good morning everyone. Thank God for His intense demonstrated love for us. Enjoy His abundant life today!
For us to be successful in life we need be very clear in our minds, that God is good, and He loves us and would never harm us. John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. Vs 11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.
He is not the one making you sick, nor is He using the devil to teach you a lesson. He loves you so much that He died for you, and was raised up again so that you could have the abundant life He spoke of. It is the GOODNESS of God that leads us to repentance, Romans 2:4.
The word abundantly in John 10:10 is “perissos” in the Greek, meaning superabundant (in quantity) or superior (in quality), exceeding abundantly above, advantaged, very highly, beyond measure. Now that is your God! Also the word “life” in that same verse is “Zoe” in the Greek, meaning the God kind of life.
Yet religion has tried to teach us that God is the one killing people and causing disasters. I think we just established that we have been lied to by religion. God wants you to enjoy the rich abundant life that only comes through Him, and His abundance of grace and free gift of righteousness, Romans 5:17. It is imperative that we learn our new identity now that we are “in Christ” understanding what Jesus finished work at the cross has done for us. Hosea 4:6 tells us: My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge. Notice it says “my people”. In God’s mind mankind is associated in Christ; in His blood sacrifice we were ransomed; our redemption was secured; our sins were completely done away with, Colossians 1:14 (Mirror Translation). Praise the Lord what a loving awesome God we serve! Today you can overcome because you know God is for you not against you, your sins were completely done away with, and we are righteous (innocent, guiltless, and faultless) because of our savior. Who came to save us, and through Jesus He did just exactly that! Now, go reign in life today in Christ!
