Breakfast at Tiffany's: More To This Life

[This week's column was written by Aaron Gravett]


“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10:10).” - Jesus Christ

 

Here I come to the end of another day, and I am reminded that I have so much more to this life. Personally, I can’t wait to get home to be with my beautiful wife. That’s such a big blessing in my life.


Steven Curtis Chapman had a song “More To This Life” that had the lyrics, “There’s more to this life, than living and dying, more than just trying to make it through the day.” It described the mundaneness of life apart from the answer. 


The biggest thing is to know that there’s more than just the mundane tasks of life. So many people wake up, eat, go to work, come home, eat, relax and then go to bed, then repeat that throughout the week. Maybe they have a little time off during the weekend, then it goes by so fast and they repeat the same again.


Weeks go by, then months and before you know it - years.  For many, it can get depressing.


That’s why sometimes I just hold my Bible, close my eyes, and feel the presence of Jesus Christ. Knowing him as my Lord, Savior, King, Master and Best Friend brings so much more meaning to the everyday. The tasks I do as routine can be dedicated to Him as a form of worship to bring glory to His Name.


Then I realize the high calling of loving and serving Him with everything I have, and telling and leading other people to Him brings me a higher purpose to get up for every day.


Let this encourage you to realize in Jesus Christ you can have more than this life. In fact, you can have life with Him and have it more abundantly. You can live fully in His grace, mercy, love, righteousness and truth. Then one day, through the rapture or death, He will bring you to be with Him - home in heaven!


Therefore, when things are hectic or mundane you can just close your eyes and have faith that His presence is with you - you can have more than this life!
