GoG 106: The Abundance

Whew! 4 more posts to go, and I'll be caught up. ... Gotta get those GoGs in! :)

This past Saturday, I was at the church getting ready for Sunday morning's lesson during youth Sunday School. We were having our pancake breakfast fundraiser that morning, so there wouldn't be a lot of time for a lesson ... so I was pondering on something short. Short but powerful. :) ... I've been thinking on God's abundance a bit lately. One of my favorite verses in all of scripture is the second part of John 10:10 when it says ... "Jesus came that we might have life and have it abundantly!" Mmm mmm! That is such good stuff!

So I grabbed a concordance and started looking for the word "abundant"/"abound"/"abundance" in the Bible. I found some verses about God's abundance of provision, God's abundance of grace, God's abundance of rejoicing .... and also, God's abundance of life. ... It was great to just think on God's abundance.

The word abundance is defined as "more than enough; amply sufficient; plentiful."

And if you think about that definition in correlation with God, it's really good stuff. God is "more than enough" for us. And His many abundances are "more than enough" in our lives. His many abundances are His grace. And isn't that what we're focusing on this year? Why, yes. Grace. God gives us an abundance of grace. We just need to be watching for it. :)
