ABUNDANT LIFE

Jn. 10:10 "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."

************

Abundant life…abundant life,
So many claim to have it;
Money in the bank,
RRSVPs…bonds…security.

"Things" all around us…"rich" are we,
We gather…hoard…we collect;
The more we have…the more we think,
We have everything correct.

On the other end of the spectrum,
If we are "poor" in worldly goods;
Sometimes we think that's where it's at,
Kind of a prideful…humbleness.

We give away our worldly goods,
Sometimes at our families' expense;
And, proud we are to show everyone,
We have nothing…so God will surely recompense!

But, speaking of the spiritual,
We hear about the thief and robber;
Who comes but to kill and destroy,
With the souls of men…he will barter.

He robs us of our peace of mind,
Steals our morals…strips us bare;
We allow him entrance into our lives,
He just laughs…he doesn't care.

He will kill us…take our physical life,
Or, even worse than that;
He will kill our spiritual life,
From our walk with God…knock us flat.

Thank God for His provision,
A way by which to escape;
When He sent our Lord Jesus,
Our whole lives to…reshape.

Abundant life…abundant life,
We've now been birthed into the heavenly;
Our real life in the spirit,
Now, we see this so very clearly.

JESUS won the battle,
So many years ago;
Claim the victory He's acquired,
Allow your spirit-man to grow!

Rise up…in the spirit,
Reclaim all that's taken from you;
JESUS paid the price for us,
From the prison house…we're rescued!

Let's walk worthy of our calling,
Proclaim that JESUS lives;
Push back…tear down those strongholds,
This is the abundant life that He gives.

We are more than conquerors,
JESUS has made the way;
Daily…let our Captain lead us,
From His pathway…never stray.

Led by His Spirit,
And, held by His hand;
Encompassed with His great Love,
In the heat of battle…we shall stand!
