Abundant Life

God is so amazing. Look at a blade of grass. You might think, what could be more commonplace than grass. We walk over it. Cows eat it. But really look at a blade of grass. God made this incredible thing! Out of nothing, God spoke and made grass. He made a molecule of chlorophyll. It can take the energy of the sun (that God made) and turn it into food for the plant. It can multiply itself so abundantly that grass grows in most places on the earth. It can practically grow out of the rocks! It has such abundant life, that we spend time hacking it back, it grows so much! It provides food for so many of God's creatures...cows, bunnies, birds, deer, turtles.... and then other creatures eat those creatures. The green color is beautiful to us. We love the smell of cut grass.

God is like that. Beauty and abundant life springs forth from Him. Jesus said, “A thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly." When mankind sinned, and was separated from God, that is, separated from life, God provided a way we could still have life, and have it abundantly. That way is through His Son, Jesus, who gave his life so that we might live. When we acknowledge that we are sinners and need the savior, Jesus, and we put our trust in Him, then we can have eternal life with God. Turn to God, repent, and live!
