Life in all its fullness, yet again

It struck me earlier today that my prayer, expressed at the end of my last post of 2015, has been answered... And how!! I couldn't, in my wildest dreams, have imagined how the first half of this year would turn out.Talk about God being generous.The year didn't start well - the first fortnight was torrid to say the least; but since then, things in my life have been 'on the up and up’- three posts this year demonstrate that -My Rocky Road,God is LoveandRevolution & Resolution.Which, I think, segues fairly neatly into a post about abundance...

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10b

These thoughts are far from fully formed. They stem from a feeling which began to take hold of me during our autumn of 'Pause and Pray' or 'Be Still...'. We Christians can be far too fixated on working - either from a false sense that we have to 'earn' our salvation, or that we 'need' to put all our energies into obeying the 'Great Commission':

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:19-20
