My favorite Bible verses about life and enjoying it the right way in Christ is John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”
This verse defines and propels the very essence of our Bible Health ministry and has been the catalyst behind our website, social media channels, free screening, books, and newsletters to spread our message of abundant life in Christ Jesus. It is our mission in life to let the world know that the blessing of the Lord is our birthright, which includes abundant health and wellness in EVERY aspect of life!

Exploring the Abundant Life
When you consider a garden, you know a plant is full of life when it’s putting on new growth and producing fruit. It seems that the same could be said for us as well.
While we certainly have seasons of renewing our strength and sending down new roots, we also should have seasons of developing new growth and producing fruit in our lives.
We believe that God’s plan is for us to live an abundant, joy-filled life! That means every area of our existence should be vibrant, full of vigor, and well-balanced. In our post about Biblical Health and the Abundant Life, we outline seven areas to focus on in our lives.
Those seven areas are:
- Spiritual Abundance
- Physical Abundance
- Mental Abundance
- Emotional Abundance
- Financial Abundance
- Occupational Abundance
- Social Abundance
What area do you need to work on?
God gave us life – He breathed our life into us at the very beginning. Look through these Bible verses about life and see all the ways we’ve been blessed by God. The life that was breathed in us to become a vessel of worship and praise. The life that we have in Him through our faith in salvation. The life that is granted to us new every day. How are we using that life?
Our prayer for you is that these Bible verses about life will remind you of the blessing we enjoy each and every day – even when things seem tough. When we need extra reminders of what God has done for us, we like to copy our favorite Scriptures out on index cards to meditate on.
