Abundant Living

by Don Wicks, Parkhill, Ontario, Canada

UPDATE  There are now 189 “Short Thoughts” devotionals. In Week 27 (Days 183-189), we conclude the series on the Book of Romans with Day 183 (Romans 15) and Day 184 (Romans 16). There are meditations from Lamentations (Great Faithfulness) and Jeremiah 29 (Good News, Bad News), then three from I Thessalonians 1-3.  Check “Menu” bars at top right- then “Short Thoughts – Week 27: Days 183-189”.


“I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” John 10:10b ESV

These are words Jesus Christ spoke two thousand years ago. He says that He came to offer us “abundant life”. This abundant life answers the need we sense for forgiveness, meaning, purpose, and relationship. Everything written on this blog grows out of John 10:10b. It will be great to explore Jesus Christ’s promise of life and life abundant. I suggest that you begin with the first “Short Thoughts” meditation. You’ll see that each “Short Thoughts” section is identified as a “Week”, with seven meditations. Perhaps, eventually, there will be fifty-two “Weeks” of these devotional readings that can be used over a year. Currently, there are 27 weeks (189 devotionals).

A few full-length sermons can be found under the heading “Sermon: [title of sermon]”.
