Enjoying the good life

God desires a great life for each and every one of us!

*[[Joh 10:10]] KJV* ...I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
*[[3Jn 1:2]] KJV* Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
*[[Jer 29:11]] KJV* For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

God's desire is that we experience this great and abundant life without having to struggle or sweat for it because He has already made provision for it in Christ- it's ours already in Christ. See

[[1Jn 4:9]] KJV* In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. [...that we might enjoy eternal life (the  God kind of life- an abundant overflowing life)  by virtue of our union with Him.

*[[1Jn 5:11]] KJV* And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

*[[1Jn 5:12]] KJV* He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

And also because He has given us the victory in Christ over any situation or challenge that may come our way- always and in every situation, challenge, or endeavor we have the overwhelming victory by virtue of our union with Christ!

*[[1Co 15:57]] KJV* But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

*[[2Co 2:14]] KJV* Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.

*[[1Jn 4:4]] KJV* Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

*[[Rom 8:37]] KJV* Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

*[[1Jn 5:4]] KJV* For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Furthermore, He has already made abundant provisions for our every need in Christ:

*[[2Pe 1:3]] KJV* According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

*[[2Co 8:9]] KJV* For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

*[[2Co 1:20]] KJV* For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

*[[Phi 4:19]] KJV* But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

*[[2Co 9:8]] KJV* And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

How do we enjoy this victory and His goodness?
Simple! By faith; by walking in faith! Our faith is the victory that has overcome the world- 1Jhn. 5:4 and through it we access God's grace- Rom.5:2

Note 1 on Romans 1:1: Being a Servant, Destiny, God's Purpose, Faith, Holiness and other thoughts

Verses 1- 7 mark the introduction to the epistle to the Romans. The epistle begins with an introduction.
In this introduction, we learn a few things.
Verse 1
At the beginning of his epistle, Paul introduces himself as, "a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ called [to be] an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God".
“… a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ”
The word rendered "servant" here means "slave." Some commentators and Bible translations have expressed it as "bondservant" or "bond-slave", both of which essentially mean the same thing- slave. So essentially, Paul is introducing himself as a slave of the Lord Jesus Christ.
What does that mean?
For our purposes, we will define a slave as someone “who is the property of another person and whose labor and life often is subject to the owner's volition." (Wiktionary). In other words, there is the presence of two elements: the ownership of one person by another and the owner’s right of se…

Notes on Romans 1:8

(Rom 1:8 KJV) First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all,
Thanking God through Jesus Christ is how we are to give thanks and it is one and the same with thanking God in the name of Jesus: see the following Scriptures:
Eph 5:20 (KJV) Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Col 3:17 (KJV) And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
It means giving thanks to God because of Jesus Christ or for the sake of Jesus Christ. It is giving thanks to God in or by open acknowledgment of what the Lord Jesus has done. In simple terms, it is thanksgiving infused with or borne out of a Christ-consciousness.
See Heb. 13:15 (KJV):

Note 2 on Romans 1:1: Discovering and Fulfilling God's Will for your Life

Rom 1:1 (KJV):  Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
called [to be] an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God.
This simply means that his work as an apostle was limited to the gospel (good news or good tidings) of God.
'Called' there means appointed or ordained. The words “to be” are italicized in the King James Version (KJV) because they are not in the original Greek manuscript and were only added by the KJV translators to aid understanding of the sentence. This is because the word, ‘called’ here is translated from the Greek word, ‘klÄ“tos’ which primarily means invited. As such, the sentence would have read: invited an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God.
