Is ABUNDANT LIFE same as ABUNDANT POSSESSION?
LIFE is what someone has INSIDE ONE’S BEING.
But POSSESSION is what someone has OUTSIDE ONE’S BEING.
The Scriptures teach that:
Abundant LIFE (John 10:10), does NOT consist in Abundant POSSESSION (Luke 12:15);
Abundance of Life comes from rich indwelling (Col 3:16) and inward fullness (Eph 5:18) by the Quick and Active Word (Heb 4:12) which is both Life and Spirit (John 10:10);
Eternal Life is to live eternally springing forth (John 7:37-39) true lively Worship of, Witness to, Work for and Walk in Christ.
To have Life and Abundant Life means to have:
QUICKENING and ABUNDANT QUICKENING;
VIGOUR/VITALITY and ABUNDANT VIGOUR/VITALITY;
VIVACIOUSNESS and ABUNDANT VIVACIOUSNESS;
ANIMATE-ENERGY and ABUNDANT ANIMATE-ENERGY.
LIFE is what we receive into and produce from WITHIN our being.
POSSESSION is what we have OUTSIDE our being.
The thief comes only to steal, slaughter, and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
Then he said to them, “Be careful to guard yourselves against every kind of greed, for a person’s life doesn’t consist of the amount of possessions he has.”
RECEIVE ABUNDANT LIFE AND LIVE POWERFULLY IN CHRIST.
