To have more than one needs, a large amount or quantity of something; an overflowing amount; to have plenty of.
And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in goodness and truth, / I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly. / For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness will reign in life through One, Jesus Christ. / Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, / not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. / Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
Ex 34:6; John 10:10; Rom 5:17; Eph 3:20; Tit 3:5-7; 1 Pet 1:3-5.
Faith in Christ moves us into being one with Christ, He has given to the disciple the gift of an abundant life that started the moment that we receive Christ personally into our hearts. He pours out on and in us an abundance of grace, mercy, love and power so that we can live a victorious life here on earth. We need to see in our hearts that we are moment by moment abundantly blessed by God.
Lord often when I think of the word abundance I think of a river flowing out from your thrown, that whenever I am thirsty I can come to you and drink freely. I also experience your abundance like rain that is warm and gentle refreshing and cleaning me with your love and mercy. Lord I thank you for the abundance of grace that shower forth to me each day and help me to remember that through your abundant love you gave to us your Son Jesus Christ.
