ABUNDANCE

So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in law, with her, which returned out of the country of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.

Ruth 1:22

Abundant life is eternal life, a life that begins the moment we come to Christ and receive Him as Saviour, and goes on throughout all eternity. The biblical definition of life — specifically eternal life — is provided by Jesus Himself: “

Now, this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent” (Jn 17:3). This definition makes no mention of length of days, health, prosperity, family, or occupation. The only thing it does mention is knowledge of God, which is the key to a truly abundant life.

Then, abundant life does not consist of an abundance of material things. If that were the case, Jesus would have been the wealthiest of men. But just the opposite is true (Matt 8:20)..”
