This moment is filled with blessings beyond measure.
(Listen to my song “Slow Me Down” on YouTube by clicking HERE)
“I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”
When Jesus said this…was he talking about amassing more money, more flashy cars, bigger mansions with swimming pools and tennis courts, perhaps having second and third homes on the beach?
No…there is nothing in the entire body of Jesus’ teaching to back that.
So what is this “life” that he came to give us “more abundantly”?
Look around you.
Take a moment to look at the sky…to listen to the birds…to see the trees and green grass.
Take a deep breath…and then slowly exhale.
Feel the energy of life pulsating in your body.
As Jesus said, “Behold, the kingdom of God is among you” (Luke 17:21) or as it is sometimes translated, “The kingdom of God is within you.”
The first words Jesus is quoted as saying in the Gospel of Mark are these: “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand” (Mark 1:15).
This is the time.
When we are present to the Divine Presence in each moment…we experience Life that has no end.
Spend time in the now.
Then lovingly share your abundant life with someone near you.
