Day 32 meditation reveals that to have abundant life or not to have abundant life, mysteriously living in defying circumstances, is not a matter of choice (or chance) but a matter of truth and deception.
One of the greatest paradoxes of the mystery of grace is the enormous number of people that fail to experience the rich, full, and contented life. This failure is even more mystifying when it is understood that the strongest motivation within man is to experience that life. Ultimately, everything man does, he does it with the hope that it will produce the life he so desperately craves. Yet, even though man’s basic drive is to experience life in the fullest sense of the word, few people experience the life they desire. The mystery of mysteriously living is rampant throughout mankind.
Day 32 meditation proclaims the life that is promised to all men everywhere.
For example, many people fail to experience abundant life even though Jesus said, “I am come that [men] might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Paul wrote, “. . . much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ” (Rom. 5:17). Peter stated, “Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life . . . ” (2 Pet.1:2). James wrote, “. . . [every believer has the opportunity to] receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him” (James 1:12). Finally, Jesus said, “I am . . . life” (John 14:6).
Day 32 meditation raises questions that must be answered to experienced mysteriously living in defying circumstances.
Perplexing questions must be raised, “If everyone desires life and Jesus is life, why do people reject him?” How can people let life be received in vain, or frustrate the very life they desire so desperately? How can people have life within them and that life “profit [them] nothing” (Gal. 5:2) or that life “become of no effect unto [them]” (Gal. 5:4). How can people who once have known God, now “[glorify] him not as God, [and not be] thankful” for Him (Rom. 1:21)? How can so many people miss, even though it is their greatest desire, the “righteousness, and peace, and joy” that is found in the kingdom of God (Rom. 14:17)?
Day 32 meditation proclaims that Jesus has the power to produce abundant life in your life.
All that God wants of you is the realization that Christ is the essence of your life. The true Light can give every man salvation from the deception of his mind that keeps bringing distress, despair, a since of being forsaken and destroy that comes from an over active imagination. Jesus Christ can enable every man to experience the life of which he so desperately desires. You are entitled to that life for that life actually dwells within you. A simple call, “Jesus, I need you today,” will bring his presence to the forefront of your mind. Jesus has the power to produce your life as it was meant to be: in peace, joy, and a sense of that which is right. It is the mystery of mysteriously living.
