Topic: The Life With Abundance

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.John 10:10 KJV
There are many people who don’t really know the devil, they see him as a nice guy who cares about them and want them to enjoy good life, wealth and abundance, but Jesus, the one who came from the Father and knows all things revealed the secret mission of the devil.
The Master, the Lord Jesus made us understand that everything the devil does is to fulfill only one mission, which is threefold: to steal, to kill, and to destroy; that’s his threefold mission.
Does the devil has anything to give? No! Does he have any riches he can give to anyone to enjoy? No! Does he have any protection he can offer? No! He has nothing to give, what he is all out to do is to steal that which God has given you so that you’ll be with nothing other than pain, sorrow, bitterness, and regret.
The number one thing the devil always targets first is the soul, if he steals a person’s soul he has stolen the person completely. Having or possessing one’s soul means he has the life, mind, health, success, and the properties of that person; that’s what he has done to most people who are now living in pain, regrets, and bitterness; the thief has stolen their good life and has given them sorrow and bitterness in replacement.
Jesus, the only one who loves and cares for all men and want men to be free from Satan the chief thief said, “…I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Can anything be better than this? No! It can’t get better than this, having the life that Jesus brought to enjoy, that means you have everything you need in life.
The only thing that all men need irrespective of how much life, or the devil has impoverished them is this life that Jesus brought to all men; it is not a limited life or life full of limitations, it’s a life with abundance; everything that’s connected to the life in Jesus has no limitations and is stress-free.
The thief, who is the devil steals, kills, and destroys people’s lives, by doing these, he impoverish many; but Jesus came to stop the thief, unmasked him, and make available to all men life with abundance, life with no limitations, and life with peace. Hallelujah! Do you have this life? Enjoy it. If you don’t have it yet, receive it now by receiving Jesus, the life Himself.
Precious Father, thank you for the life you’ve given me in Christ Jesus; I am full of life, and I have abundance to enjoy with it, all because of what Jesus did for me; blessed be your name forever, in Jesus name. Amen.
