-HOW TO LIVE IN IT-
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it more abundantly.
ABUNDANTLY MEANS; MORE THAN ENOUGH…
LIFE – ZOE; THE NATURE OF GOD.
MEANS “SUPERABUNDANCE” – IN QUANTITY AND SUPERIOR IN QUALITY.
AMPC “I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till itoverflows).
TPT But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect —life in its fullness until you overflow!
HOW DO WE LIVE THIS OUT?
2 Cor 4:6 For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves;
HE’S TALKING ABOUT WHAT WE HAVE IN OUR BODY!
8 we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;
10 always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.
PAUL IS SAYING, EVEN THE LIFE OF JESUS CAN BE MANIFEST IN OUR BODY.
11 For we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesusalso may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
Rom 8:9 However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. 10 If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.
GOD WANTS US LIVING A LONG, FRUITFUL LIFE…
2 Cor 4:16 We do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.
GOD GAVE US WHAT THE BIBLE CALLS THE EARNEST OF OUR INHERITANCE… THE FIRST FRUITS OF OUR INHERITANCE.
11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
HE WILL QUICKEN YOU TO WORK FOR HIM BUT HE WILL ALSO QUICKEN YOU WHEN YOU ARE WEAK OR SICK.
HOW DO WE RECEIVE THIS?
John 4:10 Jesus answered and said to her, “if you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.”
13 Jesus answered and said to her, “everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”
John 7 Jesus said, “out of your belly would flow rivers of living water. This spake He of the Spirit.”
EVERY BELIEVER HAS WITHIN THEM A LIMITLESS SUPPLY OF LIFE.
WE NEED TO LEARN TO DRINK LONGER FROM THE FOUNTAIN.
WE DRINK BY OPENING OUR MOUTH AND SPEAKING… BELIEVING, PRAISING, LAUGHING, DECLARING HIS WORD…
IT’S CALLED, SPIRITUAL DRINKING… BELIEVE YOU RECEIVE!
