Today’s Daily Devotional
The life Jesus gives is abundant life. There was more than enough wine for the wedding in John 2. When Jesus fed the five thousand in John 6, there were twelve baskets full left over. When the prodigal son returned to the father’s house in Luke 15, he remembered his father’s house had bread to spare. When our Lord saves us, He does more than just deliver us from Hell, He gives us life abundant and free. He doesn’t merely pardon our sin—the Bible says, “He will abundantly pardon” (Isaiah 55:7).
If you have mistreated somebody and said, “Would you please forgive me?” and that person said, “That’s all right, I forgive you,” that is a pardon. But if he take you into his arms and embraces you, that is abundant pardon. That’s the kind of pardon we have in our Lord. He gives us not only abundant pardon but also abundant provision. Our Lord abundantly blesses us. Jesus said in John 10:10, “that they may have life . . . abundantly.” And Ephesians 3:20-21 reminds us, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.” Jesus took our stony hearts and our vessels of clay filled with meaningless ritual and religion and then gave Himself as the well of endless joy.
- What stirs in you when you consider the abundant pardon Jesus has given you?
- When have you experienced abundant joy from Jesus?
Encourage someone you have seen exemplify joy from Jesus.
