Today I know of 3 people struggling with health Issues. They are staying alive with medical equipment. Most of us would say living like that is not abundant life. I am here to tell you abundant life is not physical, it’s spiritual. While speaking to one of these ailing people by phone, I found more abundant life in them than in many healthy people.

Colossians 2:13-14 … we were dead in our sins, He made us alive by the forgiveness of our sins, He wiped all the requirement against us and He nailed them to the Cross. So abundant life is this:

– We children of God and Christ is in us.

– We are guiltless; Christ paid it all.

– We live with a new covenant of relationship with the Lord.

– We have Great benefits.

II Corinthians 8:9  For you know the grace of our lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.

So today if you are a child of God, you will live with God for ever. Even if you are struggling, sick and poor, you are rich in every way.
