So - What Else


"I have told you this that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete" (Jn.15:11).

Humans are so much more than physical beings. More important than the physical aspect of life is the spiritual..We understand that a purely materialistic world does not work, so the spiritual side of life must be fulfilled. Jesus makes this wonderful claim to us that He will provide the spiritual sustenance that we need to survive and flourish. Today's verse is just one aspect of it. To the woman at the well he offered the spiritual water of life... After feeding 5,000 people and then walking on water, he makes the claim that He is the bread of life... In today's verse He offers us a joy that we cannot have without Him. "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives" (Jn.14:27). He offers us a peace that the world cannot come even close to giving... "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world" (Jn.16:33). He offers us this peace that overcomes troubles. Finally, there is one more claim... "The thief comes only to steal and to kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life; and have it to the full" (Jn.10:10). Jesus offers us the abundant life... The spiritually abundant life that exceeds all expectations. We serve a magnificent Savior.... He is certainly the answer to what else....

Have a wonderful day... Make your little part of the world better... Love mark Phil.4:11
