Have an abundant life – Prayer for December 9. We are new creation in Christ. God wants for us to seek more out of life. He wants us to have a life of abundance. But in God’s thinking, it nothing has to do with acquiring worldly things that will one day disappear. Instead, it’s all about what’s eternal. Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, we now have a way to be reconciled with God and have eternal life with Him in heaven.
Bible Verse for Today
“and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” (Ephesians 4:24)
You may have experienced painful things and situations in your past. God still wants you to rejoice in your life every day. But that is only possible if you decide to capture the abundant life that Jesus has made available to you through his death and resurrection. Otherwise, the devil will always try to take it away from you.
Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”(John 10:10). Jesus became man and died for you, so that you can have an abundant life!
Through this life He gives you, you are a new creation. You do not have to allow what happened in the past to continue to influence your life as a Christian. As a new creature in Christ, you can renew your mindset through the biblical truths. Your feelings can also experience healing and recovery. God’s good plans will unfold as you live according to your new nature, available to you through Jesus’ vicarious death on the Cross.
