In John 10: 10b Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (NKJV) Or, as The Amplified Bible states it, “life in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)”.
“Abundantly”…..what does that mean? So often when people hear the word “abundance” they think only of the accumulation of finances, money, and material things. But the abundance that Jesus talked about was so much more! Abundant life – life eternal through God’s Son, Jesus!! God gives us the hope of abundant life for all eternity. But, Jesus also, provides for us to have abundant life in the present – today – this very moment – life to the fullest! How? God offers us untold blessing after blessing. He has provided many ways for us to have the abundant life now that Jesus came to give us. The most precious gift is:
• The abundance of His Presence. Sarah Young writes in her book, Jesus Calling, “Our hope is ultimately about heaven, where we will live with Him forever, but the Light of heaven’s Glory is so brilliant that some of its rays can reach us even in the present”. For those that know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, we have His Presence living in us, walking beside us and leading the way for us.
God has also blessed us by giving us the:
• The abundance of creation – its beauty, its warmth, the air we breathe, its nutrients
• The abundance of life itself, daily breath, the promise of needs met
• The abundance of family and friends – loving and caring
• On and on we could go.
My involvement in Young Living began February 2015 with the belief that Young Living Essential Oils was one way that God has provided for my family to know a more abundant living here and now. From this belief grew my vision (purpose) for Abundant Life Builders to build a team of like-minded, passionate people who also want to share the oils not only with their families but with any and all that God sends our way.
And so I welcome you to the Abundant Life Team page! I am pleased to have a means to keep in touch with all of you and share important information and encouragement with others who are passionate about Young Living oils and products.
I’m here to help and serve you in any way I can! I pray for you often and want to glorify God and bring many to an abundant life, a life that overflows, through the ministry of essential oils.
I love this verse, this promise from the Lord:
Exodus 4:12: “Now go: I will help you speak and I will teach you what to say!” As Sarah Young has said in her devotional book, Jesus Calling, “Our part is to yield to His creative work in us, neither resisting it nor trying to speed it up. Enjoy the tempo of a God-breathed life by letting Him set the pace. Hold His hand in childlike trust, and the way before you will open up step by step.”
