We can find that we get off course at times. We can be distracted or intentionally take a wrong turn; either way course correction is a necessary part of the journey if we want to go towards the desired destination.
We were meant for an exciting journey on the planet. God made us in His image, He fashioned our unique gifts and talents, plucked us from eternity and placed us on the planet to flourish.
When the world went haywire and we lost our way, God never gave up on us. His relentless love came to earth and became flesh. Jesus moved among us. He embraced us, healed us and set us free. He gave His life for you and me at the cross so we could be the righteousness of God and heirs according to the promise.
As we receive Jesus we are more than created beings, we are the ‘redeemed of God’. Jesus provided an overpayment for our mistakes, an abundant life that we can possess. This Abundant life is plentiful, ample, lavish, abounding, bountiful, prolific, and overflowing all through the life that Jesus gives.
As we receive this endless life, we find we are well supplied for. God’s grace is sufficient for us in every way. Even when we fail, He lifts us up. He pours His grace out on us and puts us back on track towards our destiny and purpose.
John 10:10 (MSG) - "I am the Gate. Anyone who goes through me will be cared for—will freely go in and out, and find pasture. A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of."
