4 Characteristics of Life in Christ

4 Characteristics of Abundant Life in Christ - John 10:10

Jesus said, "I have come so they can have life. I want them to have it in the fullest possible way... a great full life... a rich and satisfying life... life that is full and good."* 

Scripture encourages us that our life in Christ will be blessed with Christ's help, guidance, comfort, peace, joy, and purpose as we wait for a perfect eternity. 

And Scripture also tells us an abundant life involves:

    4 Characteristics of Abundant Life in Christ - John 10:10
  1. Self-sacrifice: Giving up our desires and plans whenever they interfere with God's. Matthew 16:24-26, Matthew 6:28-34 
  2. Obedience: even when it's hard. John 14:15  
  3. Persecution: not popularity. 2 Timothy 3:12 
  4. Loyalty: Being proud of God's words even when they contradict our culture's call for "tolerance," "sexual freedom," and self-love. Mark 8:38 
These things may not sound like the route to a full and satisfying life to us, but Christ assures us they are! 
* John 10:10-NIV, NLT, NRSV, ESV
