Experiencing God while your living

To me, this is the single most worthy reason for coming to Christ and receiving life through His name!

Christ said, “I have come that you might have life, and that you may have it more abundantly.” (Jn.10:10) The abundant life is experiencing God each and every day that you live. It’s waking up in the morning, and saying to God, “all right, what do you have for me today?”  “Who do you have for me to meet today?” “What do you want me to do today?” Where do you want me to go today?” “I can’t wait!”

So many people today are down and depressed. Why? Because they have yet to come to God through Christ, than experience God as they set about their day. Their day could be going to work. It could be filled with the usual run around and get things done kinda day. Or it could be just staying at home with a occasional trip outside. Whatever the case is, it doesn’t matter if you are living for God. Life then takes on meaning and purpose. What are we (God and us) going to experience today? It should be every believers question each day? Anticipation should swell up within each one.

It always has to do with people. Why? Because, people are the object of His love. “For God so loved the world”, that’s you and I, people. The apex of His creation, people. So, if God is going to bless you today, people are going to be involved in it. He is going to lead you to people. Why? If you have a relationship with God through Christ, and you are living that out, then He is wanting to have you share it with others. Again, because He loves people. He wants them to be blessed. He wants to impart life into them. Not physical life, but spiritual life. That is what Christ meant, when He said, “I have come that they might have life, and life more abundantly”.

So, no longer do you need to set about your day with your head down, saying, “oh no, here we go again today, off to work” “Can’t wait till the weekend” “I wish it was Sunday again” “Can’t wait for the next meeting”. No, you don’t have to live that way any longer! Come to Christ! Receive forgiveness for your sins that separate you from God! Then start a relationship with Him that has to do with experiencing life while your living! Then you can look forward to each and every day! Why? Because now you are truly living! You have received life! You have been born again through Jesus! A spiritual birth has taken place! Now you have true life that’s worth living!

    Hi Richard, I especially enjoyed this entry.
    It is obvious that you are living on the edge of God’s daily leading.
    Would that everyone would catch that faith and trust, knowing that just around the corner God has sent someone for you to share a piece of Him with.
    It is so exciting to live like this – just waking up and saying, “God what do you have ready for me to find today?” The most incredible things happen. Yes, God does wish for us to have good health to live life more abundantely and no matter what trials we have to go THROUGH – He is there and we know we don’t have to go through them alone.
    Thank you for your inspirational insights.
    Stella

    Stella,
    Well, as I always say, “Bless the Lord!”. Experiencing God as we live! Nothing like it, nothing. I say that it is the “abundant” life that Jesus was referring to.
    You are welcome!
