What is life? Yes we are breathing, walking and moving, but a lot of us are just going through the motions. So many people wake up in the morning, doesn’t know the point of living and asking “why do I have to get up?” For some, pursuing a career is living, earning a lot of money is living, and partying is living life. What would happen when they get to the top? What do you do next when you become so rich? And just spend it all again? Or save it all? Yet, with all that they have, they sacrifice their health, their friends, their families, their conscience for things that do not last and have little value in the eyes of God.
Jesus said that He comes so that we may have life and have it more abundantly. He has prepared for us a life in this world where we can have it abundantly. He wasn’t talking about material things or financial which a lot of people tend to focus on. He was talking about life free from worries, free from having to rely on ourselves just to get by, free from the need to prove ourselves, free from having social status and the list can go on.
It’s the kind of life where you need something, God provide it for you, always on time and always enough. It’s the kind of life where you rely on God to go to battle for you, fight your war, protect you and bring you through all troubles and trials. It’s a life where you don’t need to worry about anything, to prove anything or too tired to go through this life. Grab that Life which is Jesus. See how He is always there for you, carrying you, provides for you, protecting you, heal you, and comfort you.
Jesus, I want to live my life depending on You, and not myself. Help me to seek You and find out my path, the life that you mapped out for me and live in it according to Your will. In the Name of Jesus I pray.
