Because of Jesus, we can have a “wonder-full life.” That’s our inheritance as children of the King.
A few short years ago Prince George was born to Prince William and Kate. As the future heir to the throne of England, he was a billionaire at birth. According to records, he is the wealthiest prince that England has ever had. But as children of the King of heaven, our inheritance is greater. It is not to be counted in perishable things such as silver or gold. Our inheritance is much greater. It is life and life “to the full.”
What is meant by “life to the full”? Where can we find a picture of this kind of abundant, overflowing life? Well, in John 10:10 where that promise is given, the picture is of sheep with a loving shepherd. Their life is good because He is good. As Jesus spoke in these terms, I think it likely his hearers’ minds would have raced to the beloved 23rd Psalm. It pictures the abundant life so effectively.
This Sunday we will see the abundant life that Jesus promises and we will do so through the word pictures of the Shepherd’s Psalm. Our life is abundant because of . . .
That is the abundant life!!
