Living In Abundance: Continually Being Renewed

July 12, 20234 min read

Living a life of abundance is a concept that many of us aspire to achieve. It involves embracing our true identity in Christ and finding fulfillment in our relationship with Him. In this article, we will explore the significance of living authentically, letting go of our old selves, and continually renewing our identity in Christ. By understanding these principles, we can experience a life filled with purpose, hope, and true abundance.

In Colossians 3:9, we are encouraged to lay aside our old Adam self, with its masquerade and disguise. This verse urges us to let go of the false identities we often adopt to fit in or protect ourselves. Our old self is not our true self; it is a lie we have been living. To experience a life of abundance, we must embrace authenticity and allow our true selves to emerge.

Colossians 3:10 highlights that as believers, we have acquired a new creation life in Christ. This new life is continually being renewed to reflect the image of our Creator. Our old ways no longer define us. Instead, we are transformed beings, redeemed and restored by the power of Christ. Through this process of regeneration, we embrace our true identity in Christ and experience a life of abundance.

Living a life of abundance does not guarantee a smooth journey without challenges. Difficulties are an integral part of life. However, it is how we handle these challenges that allow us to experience true abundance. When faced with adversity, we must remember that there is meaning and purpose in every situation. We can learn from our experiences, grow through them, and find strength, hope, and provision in Christ—our true source of abundance.

Our identity in Christ transcends external factors such as nationality, ethnicity, education, or economic status. Colossians 3:11 states that these external things do not matter. What truly matters is Christ in us—the true life, the true identity. Our new life in Christ supersedes all earthly distinctions. We are united with Him and continually being renewed into His image. Our identity in Christ brings us into a new realm of abundance that goes beyond worldly measures.

When faced with challenging situations, it is essential to remember that we are not powerless. Isaiah 59:19 reminds us that the Spirit of the Lord raises up a standard against the enemy's schemes. As followers of Christ, we carry the original power and authority. The enemy may attempt to imitate, distort, and deceive, but we have the opportunity to display the manifold wisdom of God in the midst of adversity. We can overcome and experience abundant life by standing firm in our identity as sons and daughters of God. We are the standard God is lifting up in these days!

Living a life of abundance requires us to embrace our true selves and shine the light of Christ in every aspect of our lives. We have been called to live fully alive, free from the masks and disguises of our old selves. As we continually renew our identity in Christ, we bring honor to His name and embody His love, grace, and truth. Through our authentic lives, we can impact our families, communities, workplaces, and beyond.

Psalm 23:1 reminds us that the Lord is our shepherd, and we shall not want. In Him, we find everything we need—strength, hope, provision, and abundant life. Even in the darkest valleys, God's presence restores our lives and brings us peace. When we face fear and loneliness, we can take comfort in the fact that God is always near. He guides us towards a life of abundance and fulfillment.

In conclusion, living a life of abundance involves embracing our true identity in Christ. We must let go of our false selves, continually renew our identity in Him, and navigate challenges with faith and hope. Our identity in Christ transcends earthly distinctions, empowering us to overcome and display the wisdom of God. As we live authentically, we bring light into the world and experience the fulfillment that comes from a deep relationship with God. May we embrace our identity in Christ, let His light shine through us, and live a life of abundance.

Go forth with confidence, knowing that you are loved, valued, and capable of bringing about positive change. Embrace your differences, embrace your purpose, and let your light shine brightly. The world needs your unique contribution. Keep being true to yourself and continue spreading love and acceptance wherever you go.

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you. May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace, the absence of all things harmful, the presence of all thing beneficial. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Amen.
