Life More Abundantly: A 31-Day Study of God's Greatest Gift
What is life? Once we answer that, then we can glimpse what it means to have life more abundantly!
"The smallest insect on the topmost branches of that magnificent palm tree can look down with just pride on the vegetable kingdom and say, 'I am greater than this palm and all the flowers and forests of this land, for I have animal life. I am conscious of my existence, but this palm tree is not. If it were cut down, it would not know it; but I know the joy of living and the pain of suffering. In a still higher sense, I live.'
"The little child can look up at the mammoth elephant or the noble horse and say, 'You could destroy me by the faintest effort; but I am greater than you, for I have intellectual life, I have human life, I have immortal life, I have a life that can be educated until I shall master the elephant and all the strength and cunning of the animal world, and assert my lordship over the whole realm of nature. In a still higher sense, I live.'
"The most humble and uncultured saint—perhaps a poorest new convert in the jungles of Africa, or a lowly laborer, toiling in some factory or mine—can look in the face of the most brilliant human genius who knows not God in personal faith and fellowship and say, 'I live in a higher world than you, for I have spiritual life, I have eternal life, I have a life that death cannot destroy and sin cannot defile and judgment cannot dismay and eternal ages can never end. I have everlasting life.'"
