2 nights ago, we sat down for our family devotions…usually they are directed more for kids, but that night, i found the devotional extremely applicable. (just fyi, the devotion book that we are currently using is from Focus on the Family, “Fuel: 10-minute devotions to Ignite the Faith of Parents & Teens” by Joe White) The following, is just a bit of the devotional that day. I hope maybe it will give you a little to think about also.
- John 10:7-10 “So Jesus said to them again, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly.'”
Webster’s Dictionary defined the word abundant as “more than enough.”
More than enough. Think about it. Jesus came to give abundant life, abundant peace, and abundant joy.
How much beauty is more than enough? How much pleasure is more than enough? How much fame and success are more than enough? How much money is more than enough?
When will we stop trying to get high on this world’s stuff?
Life with God is abundant. Don’t try living any other way.
