I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
“I am the good Shepherd. The good Shepherd gives HIS Life for the sheep. – 📖 John 10:10-11 📖
Dirkie Smit writes in ‘The big book of Christian quotes (p 370):
“Advent and Christmas is a time of life in abundance. We do celebrate the incarnation of the SON of GOD, that JESUS accepted our life so that we can have life in abundance.”
JESUS HIMSELF said that HE is the good Shepherd that came so that those who believe in HIM, may have life, and that in abundance.
If you already are certain that you have everlasting life because you believe in JESUS, you are supposed to follow Jesus’s pattern of life.
“Whoever claims to live in HIM must live as JESUS did.” (1 John 2: 6).
If you have already tried it before, you will realize it so well. Yet it is possible for you through the intervention of the HOLY SPIRIT in your life. You have already received the HOLY SPIRIT when you came to repentance, but maybe the HOLY SPIRIT does not have you yet.
Are you willing to give the management of your life over to the leadership of the SPIRIT and allow HIM to teach you how to live like JESUS?
Then JESUS attitude of borderless love and sacrificing service will also come forward in your life.
🙏🏻 LORD JESUS, it is wonderful to love and know YOU. Give me YOUR Life in abundance through YOUR SPIRIT that lives in me please … Amen.
