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.
Living a life of abundance in Christ or the high life of Jesus is what is meant for us. Embrace these quotes of Jesus that you may understand that I am not talking of building money wealth, but that we walk in His power with patience, longsuffering and joyfulness being fruitful in good works building up treasures in our Heavenly eternal home.
And the joy we know by living life in the abundance of grace for salvation which motivates us to be good and kind to others and to hold on to our faith and total trust of the Lord, seeking His Word and His blessing of a well done servant.

Seek God to Straighten You Out
1 Peter 1:3-5
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
If you don’t have hope today and can’t figure out how to straighten out your mess, you have a hope in Jesus Christ.
Give your mess to God and have him straighten it out for you. God can handle what you can’t.
Find hope, love and faith in Jesus Christ and start bearing fruit of that faith instead of just treading water in your life.
God is love and He will tell you the truth when you seek Him so that you may have life everlasting and have it more abundantly.

Are you wasting your precious resource of time on video games or TV when you could be finding a way to be a blessing to others? You are meant to partake in the full joy of the Lord by knowing your salvation is secure, yes, but also living a life of abundance in wisdom and understanding and fruit bearing that touches the lives of others.
Think of when you have been a blessing to someone and seek ways of multiplying that joy in your life. It will bring you closer to Jesus and give you inner peace, love exceedingly and a hope for your life that you can’t help but to be extremely joyful about every day for the rest of your life and into eternity.
