I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full[/blockquote]
If God offers us life with abundance, do we have the right to compromise with less? Nothing that He offers can be earned. Gifts are received, not earned.
I would like to remind you a story you may already know. A man who never traveled before decided to go on a cruise on the Atlantic ocean. He took food supply with him: bananas and coconuts. When he got tired of the same diet, he asked a stewart if he could buy the real food. To his amazement, he found out that his table had been paid for: meals were included in the price. This man reminds of many people who starve spiritually although all of their needs have been paid for by God in Jesus Christ.
Jesus is an eternally open source. Let’s accept with faith His forgiveness of our sins, His fullness – for our void, His victory – for our defeat, His healing – for our sickness, His strength – for our weakness, His «everything» – for our «nothing».
May God bless you, my dear friends!
