Limitless: Living Life to the Full

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it too the full.” – Jesus in John 10:10

I hope you all had a meaningful and wonder-filled Christmas as we celebrated the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As we begin another year, let us continue to move forward in our relationship with God through Jesus Christ and in or relationships with one another.  

In John 10, Jesus said that He came to give us life to the full, an abundant life, a limitless life that is grounded in the greatness of our God. Our life in Jesus is limitless because it’s eternal, and it starts now, by the way. Yet we often feel like we are not living limitless.

The Wonder of Christmas

“O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them.” – Psalm 40:5 NLT

Wonder is such a great word to describe Christmas. I remember the feeling of wonder when, as a child I ran down the stairs on Christmas morning, to the beautifully decorated and lighted tree, surrounded by mounds of presents. That sense of wonder was fleeting however.

According to the dictionary “wonder” is a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable. “Wonder” also means to ponder, think about, meditate on, reflect on, puzzle over, speculate about, or conjecture, and to feel admiration, amazement, to marvel.

Thanks Living

“You are my God, and I will give you thanks; You are my God and I will extol You.  Give thanks to the Lord for He is good; His love endures forever.” – Psalm 118: 28-90

We are quickly approaching the thanksgiving season.  Our culture often ignores Thanksgiving… except of course for the big turkey dinner, the football games, and the one day family gathering… in favor of the more the commercial holidays of Halloween and Christmas.  And now black Friday has been pushed back to become “Thanksgiving Thursday” so that even the one day set apart for “Thanksgiving” is being overshadowed by special deals that lure people away from the attitude of thanksgiving and into the mode of consuming, spending, and buying.
