”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)
Abundant life is one of the numerous salvation benefits which our loving heavenly Father has given to His children, through His dear Son Jesus Christ. Salvation is a free gift, but certainly not cheap. It cost God His very best. That is why there is no remedy for anyone that rejects Christ. Whosoever contacts Jesus will find healing and health, supply and happiness plus the abundance of everything necessary for this material life and spiritual welfare. Only in Christ is their comprehensive sufficiency for time and eternity.
Briefly examined below are three vital requirements for abundant life:
Change your seat of sovereignty from self to God. Dethrone self. Enthrone God. Let your life be ”theo-centric”, and not egocentric. Self-Seekers are great losers. You must be born again. (John 3:3)
Abundant life flows from Christ. Only those that are properly connected to Him will experience the flow to overflowing. Have faith in God
A FIXED VISION
”The light of the body is the eye. If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” (Matthew 6:22 KJV)
Cultivate the ability to look through the crowd to Christ. You a chosen vessel for some specific purpose. Avoid distraction like a plaque. Don’t be ”a wanna be.” Be only what God wants you to be. The greatest thing anyone can ever be is to be like Christ. Every negative suggestion and thought must be pushed aside, making way for Christ and the word of life. Realize that power belongs to God and not to the crowd. Be constantly filled with holy enthusiasm, initiative and holy perseverance. Your calling is not to argue with sin or sickness. Your calling is to rebuke, command, take authority.
INVINCIBILITY OF PURPOSE
Reject from your mind everything that is hostile or shall separate you from your calling. Through Christ you are more than a conqueror. You are not commissioned or empowered to give treatment, but to be God’s agent for healing and release.
Nothing is real until you experience it. We are citizens of God’s kingdom. We have authority and command to be God’s healing agents in a sick world. Let abundant life from Jesus Christ flow through you.

Self – examine yourself. Are you really aware of God’s purpose for your life?

Dear Heavenly Father, I worship you. I thank you for your purpose for my life. Grant me the grace to discover it, and to fulfill it in Jesus Name.
Jesus Christ Son of the Living God, I thank you for your gift of abundant life. I receive it and ask you to work through me, and terminate anything in me that is contrary to your purpose for my life. Henceforth, grant that my life will flow in ceaseless praise of your Holy Name. Amen.
