ARE YOU LIVING THE ABUNDANT LIFE?

The Bible says that Jesus Christ came that we may have life and have it more abundantly (Jn. 10:10). The original Greek translation for "life" in this verse is "zoe," and it means life in the absolute sense or life as God intended it to be. It is a supernatural kind of life. 

The abundant life is not waiting for us in heaven, but is within every born-again believer right now (Jn. 5:24; 1 Jn. 3:14). We can release this "zoe" life and enjoy it now by denying our worldly self (Matt. 16:24-25) and allowing God’s Spirit to flow through us. The way we deny our worldly life is to lay aside any thought, emotion or action that is contrary to the Word of God. His Word is life (John 6:63). When we purposely line up our thoughts, emotions and actions with God's Word, then this "zoe" life will manifest itself into our mind, emotions, personality and physical body.

Wellness Application: What you feed your mind affects your overall wellness. Are you feeding your mind God’s Word? Are you meditating on His truth everyday? The Bible says that man does not live by bread alone, but lives by feeding on the Word of God (Matt. 4:4).
