It started with our song service. The song "In Christ Alone" has been coming up in my life this last week a lot. It started when I heard the Getty's on Chris Fabre Live. Kristen Getty sang that song and of course, it made me think and it made me cry.
We sang this song this morning along with "I'll Fly Away" and a few other songs. Betsy Walker also sang some amazing songs. If you haven't checked her out - you should!
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10
Not only did Jesus come to give us eternal life but he came that we might have it more abundantly. And not abundantly as in the worldly terms such as wealth and prestige, but life as God lives it.
"The Greek word Jesus uses in John 10:10 to describe the kind of life He came to teach His disciples is perissón, meaning "superabundant," "superfluous," "overflowing," "over and above a certain quantity," "a quantity so abundant as to be considerably more than what one would expect or anticipate." In short, He promises us a life far better than we could ever envision, reminiscent of I Corinthians 2:9, "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him" (see Isaiah 64:4). Paul informs us that God "is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think" (Ephesians 3:20)." -Source
