"I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." (John 10:10b)
I remember picking up a book one day called "Sleeping Through the Revolution" by Dr. Paul Rees . In that book, I came across a quotation from Dr. Stanley Jones's book, "Abundant Living". This is how the quote ran : "The early Christians did not say in dismay, 'Look what the world has come to', but they said in delight, 'Look what has come to the world!'"
They saw not merely the ruin but the resources for the reconstruction . They saw not merely that sin did abound but that grace did much more abound ." Dr. Jones added this significant sentence, "The whole secret of abundant living can be summed up in this sentence : 'Not your responsibility but your response to His ability ."' I like that, don't you?
"Not your responsibility but your response to His ability ."
