I could spend a lot of time writing about the problems of this world (I'll do that some other time). But right now I want to talk about the answer to all of life's problems. Those in our past, present and future.
Jesus said. " I have come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly. " John 10:10 The problem we have is that we fail to understand what true abundance and prosperity really is. Here is my perception:
*Money cannot define prosperity and abundance.
*Abundance applies to every area of life- relationships, health, finances, etc.....
*Real abundance is having everything you need to do what God has called you to do.
*Abundance is an expression of God's love. When God told Adam he could have all the trees in the garden, it was an expression of God's love.
*If you are not enjoying life, you are not fulfilling God's will for your life.
EIGHT STEPS TO ABUNDANCE
1. You must have the word of God.
2. The Word of God determines your thinking.
3. Your thinking determines your emotions.
4. Your emotions determines your decisions.
5. Your decisions will determine your actions.
6. Your actions will determine your habits.
7. Your habits will determine your character.
8. Then you will arrive at your destination of abundance.
The bottom line is that Jesus is the answer and the world needs more of Him. We need more of Him in our government, our homes, schools, and yes, even in our churches. With more of Him, we Christians can turn our world upside down. With more of Him, poverty has to go, desease has to flee, all of lifes problems are understood.
Jesus is the Answer.
