“I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
Do you know what’s wrong with many of us? We’re trying to get out of trouble rather than get into righteousness.
We’re so focused on the defensive side of Christianity that we forget about the offensive, positive approach.
Wouldn’t you like to rise up and experience the abundant life our Lord talks about? Jesus came to give us eternal life—the abundant life. We need to do like the old song says, “Accentuate the positive. Eliminate the negative.”
Why don’t we determine today that we are going to surrender to God and stay surrendered to God. The abundant life comes as a matter of course once we determine we are going to surrender to a life of obedience.
