I Want My Abundant Life NOW!

John 10:10 (NASB) The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

We don’t have to wait until we get to heaven to live abundantly. We can live our best human lives right here on earth. The problem is that we allow the thief to steal our joy, kill our dreams, and destroy our peace of mind. The answer is to live a life hidden in Christ. Nothing the enemy uses should have dominion over us.

There is an old hymn called “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” by Helen Lemmel that I would like to share with you. Pay special attention to the refrain, and even if you don’t know the tune, recite it to yourself whenever you feel you are living any less than abundantly.

1. O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

2. Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
O’er us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conqu’rors we are!

3. His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!
