The statement Jesus made regarding an abundant life refers to spiritual fellowship John 10:10
Of course God wants us to have our needs met and to prosper
When we live in PEACE with our neighbors we have the blessing of prosperity.
God and Jesus direct us with their light and we are told by the Apostle Paul that they endeavor to cause all things – including the fiery darts of Dark Angel – to work together for our good. Romans 8:28
Jesus our Lord fellowshipped with God his Father and our Father. Jesus our Lord endeavored to love God with all his heart, strength and mind. Jesus our Lord was obedient unto death.
We are to endeavor to “spiritual” fellowship with God and Jesus our Lord and to love and obey them with all our heart, strength and mind.
The heart of God is for us to be Imitators of God and a co-worker with Him as an ambassador of His only begotton son – Jesus our Lord.
God has blessed us and enabled us to walk with power, love and a sound mind instead of being overcome with fear. Jesus overcame his fear of death and trusted God his Father to raise him from the dead. Love motivated him to ratify the New Covenant with his blood.
God rewarded Jesus by appointing him both the Messiah and Lord and according to the Apostle Paul also appointed Jesus the Leader of The Church of His Body of which we are members in particular by our spiritual birth of holy spirit.
All of this was confirmed on the day of Pentecost when God poured out the gift of spiritual birth of holy spirit for all mankind. Acts 2
God accepted the sacrifice of Jesus our Lord as a peace offering between Him and mankind. Now anyone who believes God raised His only begotten son Jesus from the dead and Confess Jesus is Lord is baptized by Jesus with the ONE baptism of holy spirit.
God wants us to be physically, emotionally and spiritually whole persons.
Our heart can be deceitful to us but we are to endeavor to be honest in our walk. Psalms 51:6
We are to accept responsibility for our walk and not blame others. Psalms 51:3-4
We are to forgive others. In our world YOU may lose someone whom has been murdered by evil people whom serve Dark Angel. I curse Dark Angel but find it in my heart to forgive those who committed the murder. Let the police or military take care of bringing justice to them.
Emotional healing takes time. Life goes on. Endeavor to live your life.
Psalms 25: 4-5
The Apostle Paul explains that when we endeavor to walk in the spirit that our lives and minds become transformed.
Yours in the Bonds of Fellowship
