What’s in the Glass?

A recent beer commercial stated that it’s not whether your glass is half full or half empty, it’s whether you can get anymore. However, what really matters is not whether the glass is half full or half empty, but what what matters is what is in the glass.

For many Christians, they are satisfied that they have Christ in their life. For others, they want to have the full and meaningful life of Christ – they are “maxed-out.” But the tragedy is that we are not living the overflowing life of Christ.

overflowingJesus said he came that we might have life “abundantly.” That word “abundantly” is “perissos”in the Greek New Testament and means overflowing. Jesus wants not only to fill us with life, but to have that life overflowing to others. Can you say with the Psalmist, “my cup runneth over?” (Psalm 23:5). Do others enjoy the blessings that overflow from your life with Jesus? What is overflowing from your life?

John 10:10 (NASB)
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy: I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly.”
