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.
John 10:10 (KJV)
Jesus has come to give us access to the more abundant life. This more abundant life becomes available to us the very moment we are in Christ—we are to experience God’s goodness in our relationships, in our health, in our livelihood as well as in the area of our finances. Yet the only way to receive anything from God is by faith. We must believe in our hearts that it is God’s will that we be blessed. The thief may make an attempt to steal, kill and destroy, yet we must always stand firm upon the promises of God. Let us be sure that each of us are called to be blessed and therefore to be a blessing unto our world.
