Spring into God’s Abundant Life
If you live in the mid latitudes of the Northern or Southern hemisphere, you get to witness the undeniable and fascinating changes spring brings.
Dreary landscapes are transformed into lush greenery dotted with copious blooms and flowing streams and rivers teeming with aquatic life.
The air is filled with fragrant freshness. Days are longer as the sun sets later. Wildlife awaken from hibernation or return to graze and breed in familiar habitats, beginning a new cycle of life.
There is so much abundance during spring that animals and plants flourish in a renewal and celebration of life!
Your time to flourish
The same undeniable transformation and rebirth occurs in our lives because of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Through Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection over 2000 years ago we gain access to both eternal life with God and abundant life on earth to flourish where we are.
The beauty of God’s abundant life, unlike nature’s abundance at spring, is it’s not seasonal or finite. It’s all encompassing and available to all. But accessing it is a personal choice.
- Personal confession: You unlock God’s abundant life when you accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour of your life. His Word guarantees: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 ESV).
- Personal forgiveness: “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
- Personal obedience: “In fact, this is love for God: to keep [obey] his commands. And his commands are not burdensome” (1 John 5:3).
- Personal Altar: Create greater intimacy with God through personal times of prayer and worship. As he becomes your secret dwelling place, you become His and are transformed with greater power to impact your world.
God’s abundant life offers us a clean slate that frees us from every emotional, mental and spiritual bondage. It guarantees us hope where there’s fear, peace instead of torment, forgiveness over condemnation and security in uncertainty.
