Abundant…what does it mean? According to Webster’s Dictionary it means present in great quantity; more than adequate, well supplied, abounding, richly supplied.
This time of year, Zucchini begins to appear around church. Everyone is sharing their abundance. It has always amazed me at the production of the Zucchini plants. It always seemed like they would grow overnight. I would pick some one night and the next night when I came home from work there would be more. It was always so satisfying brining in a bucket load of vegetables at night.
The grace of God toward his fallen creatures is like that bucket of vegetables full to overflowing abundance. We have done nothing to deserve his grace toward us and yet he willing bestows it unto us. Not only do we receive his grace at our Salvation, but everyday. He does not leave us once we are saved, but continues to guide our foot steps of the everyday grind. It is most comforting to know that God is always there.
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.Psalm 139:7-10
