they may have it more abundantly" John 10:10.
on this Website reflects values and gifts our Creator shares
with those who are willing to take the time to study their
Bibles and learn from "the Holy Spirit whom God has
given to those who obey Him" Acts. 5:32.
focus of this series of meditations is on God and Jesus
Christ, and what they do for us. The intent is to share
simple lessons from the Bible that build faith and that
will lead people to know and understand God, what He is
like, how much He loves us, and what He does for us.
gifts for abundant living are the values that He shares
with us. We receive His values from the instructions He
shares with us in the Bible. Jesus and Moses both proclaimed
that "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every
word that proceeds from the mouth of God." Matt. 4:4;
people seem to believe that you can not really know God;
however, that's not what the Lord tells us. Throughout the
Bible God shares information about Himself with us.
says the Lord: 'Let not the wise man glory in his
wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might,
nor let the rich man glory in his riches. But let
him who glories glory in this, that he understands
and knows Me. That I am the Lord, who exercises loving
kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.
For in these I delight,' says the Lord." Jeremiah
God of the heavens and the earth will make Himself known
to all who really want to know Him.
is life eternal that they may know you, the only true God,
and Jesus Christ whom You have sent." John 17:3.
showers His many gifts on all of mankind. However, not everyone
is so inclined to want to know Him. And that's too bad,
because they are only short- changing themselves.
most valuable gifts are for those who really seek to know
Him and to search Him out. Solomon wrote, "It is the
glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings
is to search out a matter." Prov. 25:2.
likened the kingdom of heaven to a "treasure hidden
in a field which a man found and hid" then he went
and sold all that he had in order to buy the field so that
the treasure could be his. Matt. 13:44.
tells us, "Where your treasure is, there your heart
will be also." Matt. 6:21. Our heart will follow where
we think the treasure is.
everyone's treasure is the kingdom of heaven. For those
who's treasure is the kingdom of heaven, God and Jesus have
given us a map, a treasure map, on how to get there.
through Jesus, has shared His values with us. And if we
chose to live by His values, and accept Him and respect
Him for who He is, He has made every provision for us to
be adopted into His family.
values are the principles of life. We often do not recognize
that God's gifts, His values, are the essence of life. They
protect us, and provide so much more fulfillment for us
in this life, and prepare us for the life to come.
gifts our Creator shares with us freely. It is up to us
whether we accept them or not. I like to call them God's
gifts of love, joy, peace, hope, health, healing, inspiration
and so much more! God's gifts, His values, are free for
the asking and receiving. It is up to us to search them
out and decide on whether to accept them or to reject them.
We have complete freedom to choose the values by which we
is through Jesus that these gifts have been made available
to every child born into the human race (John 1:9).
