I. God is Life
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
Jesus said I’ve come to give you life and life abundantly. He promises that living waters will spring from within us to everlasting life. God is all about life – super abundant life. In the Book of Revelation we see the River of Life flowing from the Throne of God and the Tree of Life that is for the healing of the nations. The devil is the thief. He is the taker. God is the Giver! Make sure never to accuse the Lord of what the devil is doing. That would be like calling good evil or evil good.
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
II. The Exact Representation of the Father
Jesus made it really clear that He only has good things to hand out to us. All He demonstrated was as an EXACT REPRESENTATION OF THE FATHER. He did say in the world you will have tribulation, but to take heart for He has overcome the world. He is all about getting His world into our world. Jesus heals, delivers and gives life just as He demonstrated. This is a fallen world but God has us here to partner with him in bringing His perfection into people’s lives. It is quite amazing that He uses us, the imperfect vessels, to be dwelling places for His perfection – even by the Person of the Holy Spirit.
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.”
BLESSED: g3107. μακάριος makarios; supremely blessed; by extension, fortunate, well off: blessed, happy.
God wants you happy, blessed, thankful, overflowing with His love being captured by His goodness to you. Just imagine your most joyful moment in the Lord and it cannot compare to the highest joy available to you from heaven’s reality. Likewise, it is the same with His grace, peace and love.
III. Experience Heaven and Give it Away
The greatest amount that we have tasted on earth cannot compare to the degree that we would experience in heaven. But that is exactly what God is after – heaven on earth!
“Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.”
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”
Align your heart with the truth that God want to pour into you every good and perfect gift by His Spirit. He is the greatest Giver of all. There is no lack to those who seek Him, who put Him first. (Psalm 34:10, Matt. 6:33) He wants you to experience and know the fullness of His goodness and love everyday. For what you receive you can give away! Receive from Him today knowing that you will have His goodness to give away.
