“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

Take a moment to think about when you asked Jesus to come into your heart. The Savior of the world came to give life to YOU!! Jesus came to give YOU life! In John 10:10, Jesus states “I have come so that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”
“My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.”
– John 10:10 (TLB)
You have a Savior that has saved you from the thief that came to steal from your soul, and He gave His abundant life to you. Jesus came to this earth for the purpose of giving you life in abundance and fullness!!! Think on that for a moment: to give YOU a life that is abundant, here in this day. The definition of abundance is “an extremely plentiful and over-sufficient quantity or supply.” That is a life that is overflowing! Do not think of abundance in only material things, like lots of clothes or the new and best devices. Think of fullness in yourself. Not full of yourself (lol), but fullness inside your soul.
Your soul is the part of you that is your thoughts, your emotions, and your will. Is there a part of your soul that needs fullness? A function in the Lord’s saving grace is to give life to you that is full, not empty. Romans 15:13 says we can have “hope that is overflowing.” Philippians 1:9 says we can have “love that overflows.” That is a soul that is full! Jesus came to make you complete, and He gave us a life without voids; life in abundance! There are times we may “feel” a place in ourselves that is scarce, so take this need to your Savior.
Ask God to show you how full He has made you to be today.
