Abundant Living

by Don Wicks, Parkhill, Ontario, Canada

UPDATE  There are now 182 “Short Thoughts” devotionals. As we work our way through the Book of Romans (starting at Day 169 with Romans 1), we now have reached Week 26: Day 176 (Romans 8) and Week 26  takes us as far as Romans 14 (Day 182). Check “Menu” bars at top right- then “Short Thoughts – Week 26: Days 176-182”.


“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 26 weeks (182 devotionals).

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