When Jesus said, “I Am the Way” (John 14:6)
He answered the Question – “How” does one “Live” Abundant Life
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. (1 John 4:9)
Living Through Christ — Hidden In Christ (Psalm 91)
Abundant Life – Through Jesus –> Salvation –
Hebrew meanings of Salvation –
- Soundness (Spirit, Soul, and Body)
He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler
Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
Hebrew meaning of “compass me about” – To revolve, surround or border
God loved us so much, he sent His only son, Jesus, so that we could live through Him. Living our day to day life through Jesus, is “How” we live Abundant Life.
- He Delivers Us Daily
- He Protects Us Daily
- He Preserves Us Daily
- He Heals Us Daily (Mind, Will, Emotions, Body)
- He Leads Us Into Soundness (Spirit, Soul and Body) Daily
Walking with God is a process, a daily process. Sometimes we don’t see the progress and get discouraged. Don’t. God’s Word is True. He said He would deliver, protect, preserve, heal and make us sound. He will. As we continue to abide (dwell, homestead) with God, by talking to Him, listening to Him through His written Word and His still soft voice in our spirit, God will bring the process to pass. Deliverance, Safety, Preservation, and Healing is the process that brings Soundness
Deliverance, Safety, Preservation, Healing –> Soundness
That sounds like my kind of “Abundant Life.”
