The Abundant Life

a) More Abundant Life (Intro)...

How many came here this morning seeking a blessing?

How many came with an expectation?

How many came expecting God to do exceedingly

abundantly above all that you can think or ask?

How many know that He can and will exceed

your expectations?

He wants you to be blessed!

He wants you to not only have life but

He wants you to have it more abundantly!

He said in...
Joh 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

See, God wants you to have a more abundant life, Amen?

You might think youíre living the abundant life

right now but Jesus said you can have life more
abundantly.

Thatís even better than your present state.

He saying I want to bless you above and beyond

What you already have.

I you to live the more abundant life!

A life thatís filled with the fullness of God.

A life of blessings!

He wants you to be blessed.

Blessed in the field, blessed in the house,

blessed going in and blessed going out.

He didnít come just to give you eternal life,

He wants you to have life more abundantly.

Thatís fullness on earth, fullness in heaven

Fulness right now , and fulness later. Amen?

Itís a permanent state of being!

And on top of all that Jesus offers it to anyone who will receive it.

We as Christians often talk about having life

More abundantly, but do we really know what

that means? What is the abundant life?

It is a life filled with the glory of God

A life that walks with Him daily

A life that talks with Him daily

A life that says I no longer exist,

but Christ exists in me.

b) A Liberated Life...
It is a life that has experienced liberation
A life that is free in Christ
Joh 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
The problem with many Christians today is that

they are still walking around in bondage.

Weíre not experiencing the abundant life because,

We arenít liberated. We arenít set free.

We havenít laid down our burdens.

Some of us take them to the alter with us

every Sunday morning,

And then we pick them right back up and take

them home with us.

Itís time to shake off the chains of burden,

Itís time to lay them at the foot of the cross and leave them there.

The church of God has been burdened by bondage long enough

Weíve been bound up long enough!

Bound up with the world

Bound up by Satan

Bound up by self

Bound up by sin

Itís time to say ENOUGH!

Itís time to take off the grave clothes

and start walking in the newness of life,

the abundant life.

When we live in a state of bondage,

we fail to be the blessing that God has called us to be.

And at the same time When we live in a state of bondage,

we fail to receive the blessing that God has for us.

Then we
