I am eternally grateful that Jesus came to give me abundant life and teach me how to live God’s way instead of the world’s way. Everything I need to live my new life in Him has been provided through His life and teaching. His death on the cross is the greatest demonstration, in all of human history, that God loves me, my family, my friends and everyone else. His resurrection from the dead assures me that there is no circumstance or situation that will ever happen that can separate me from Him. My old nature, the one I was born with when I came into the world, has been greatly influenced by my senses. For many years I thought that reality was to be found in the material and physical things that surround me. However, since I started following Jesus, I have been in a transition that has enabled me to see that the true and eternal things are spiritual in nature. I am progressively more and more liberated from the tangible things and am relying on God, His Word, the Holy Spirit and Jesus to support me in all of my activities. I thank God for guiding me into this awesome experience I have of living continually in His presence, one moment at a time.
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?"
"Then He (Jesus) said to them, 'Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions'."
