Live the Most Fulfilling Life
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.John 10:10
Christ gives the best most fulfilling life that we could ever live on this planet. But people have been deceived by Satan to think their life would be terrible if they were not their own god. They don’t read the Word, but Satan has many thinking that Heaven is their home. It is amazing how many people have a Bible, but rarely read it to understand God’s truth about eternal life. God is our judge and no matter what people believe, God’s judgment never changes and it’s given in the Bible.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6) No one has eternal life except through Christ, which means we have a repent heart, accept Christ as our Lord a Savior, get baptized, and receive the indwelling Holy Spirit. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. (Romans 8:9) These are the beginning basic steps to salvation.
As we live, guided by Christ through the Holy Spirit, we live life to the full because God is leading us through life toward heaven. The Lord changes us by putting his divine love in our hearts, as he leads us to be a light in this world. He changes us to be like Jesus, and the more like Jesus we become the more fulfilling life becomes. Life to the full happens when the spiritual person we are is continually satisfied by God. Inside this flesh is the spiritual us; it’s our thought, personality, and will, and the body without the spirit is dead. As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead. (James 2:26)
Satan deceives us by having us live for our fleshly desires, when the only way to be continually content and satisfied is receiving God’s continual blessing to our spirit. Satisfying our spirit is the only way we can ever have a lasting fulfilling life, and only God can fully satisfy us. Satan tells us that true satisfaction comes through the flesh, and most of the world has been deceived by his lies.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20) This verse tells us how to live the most fulfilling life. A Christians lives for Christian lives for Christ in everything they think, say, and do, to the best of our ability. We are now living the way God created us to live.
Today live as created, live for Christ and live the most fulfilling and rewarding life; as God continues to make you more like Jesus.
Prayer: Lord, help me to live life to the full through Christ, pointing people to eternal life through Christ. In Jesus name, Amen.
