“I am come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10b

In this verse of John, Jesus was teaching that He came so that we may have life
– a life filled with the Holy Spirit, if only we allow Him to enter into our hearts.

John 14:20 quotes Jesus saying “On that day you will realize that I am in my
Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.”

AND in John 15:5, Jesus said “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man
remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do
nothing.”

When we look up the word “abundant” in the dictionary, it is shown to mean
“richly supplied; overflowing; plentiful; abounding; oversufficient; more than
adequate”. Would you agree that these words could describe something that
would bear much fruit?

Jesus was teaching that as long as we remain in Him and allow Him to fill our
hearts, we will do awesome things, to the Father’s glory!

When we turn our lives over to the care of God, and let His will be done in our
lives, and then take our action steps to follow where He guides us, He handles
the results for us! His results are always better than we could have imagined!

Many people say that what we focus on is what we get more of – like when
people are studying the Law of Attraction. You know why this is true? Because
God is the one who places thoughts in our heads and His desires in our hearts,
and it gives Him glory to see us reflect those thoughts and desires back to Him!

When we listen to God and let him guide us to take the action steps to fulfill His
will and purpose for us, it brings Him much glory!

If you haven’t already, become familiar with the book of John in the New Testament.
It is filled with the teachings of Jesus – teaching us how to live a fruitful and abundant
life, filled with the Holy Spirit!
