"The thief does not come to steal, kill, or destroy; I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly" John 10:10.
It is not as difficult as some people make it appear to have access to a decent life. Living a decent life was, in fact, integrated into the genesis of man. Before He created man in His own image and placed him over all of His other creations, God created everything that man would need for a successful life (Genesis 1:26-28). After Eve was duped into believing the devil's falsehoods and Adam defied God overtly, the calamity of a life of struggle arrived. As a result, God withdrew certain portions of His good life from them (Genesis 3:16-19). The good life from God, on the other hand, was reaffirmed through the second Adam, Jesus Christ (Romans 5:12-15).
The Holy Spirit explains how we can have access to the good life that Jesus Christ came to restore us to in 1 Peter 3:10-12, saying, "For he who loves life, and sees good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it." For the Lord's eyes are upon the righteous, and his ears are open to their requests; but the Lord's face is set against those who do evil.”
It would be sensible of you to focus on the three primary factors described in this text as essential to living a happy life. The first is your presentation. It's no surprise that the Bible states the tongue has the ability to kill or to save (Proverbs 18:21). Your relationship with God and man is greatly influenced by the substance and tone of your words. Use your tongue's ability to speak life to yourself and all that concerns you on a daily basis.
Don't try to advance in life by speaking ill of others or lying about them. Learn to ask God and man for the things you want in life. I pray that God would open your eyes to see the positive power that your tongue possesses. The second thing you must keep an eye on is your actions. What you work toward in life is more often than not what you will receive. The kinds of problems you address in this world through your actions have a big impact on the kind of reward you'll get from God and men.
May God grant you the insight to implement this fact to increase your life's reward. The third and last factor is the type of influence you have in your community. You will live a peaceful life if you work for peace in your family, community, and country. What better way to have an impact on your community than to share the good news of Jesus' abundant life (John 10:10)? You will undoubtedly have a good life around you if you can persuade wicked workers to start doing good.
Are your words, deeds, and influence all working together to establish the excellent life that Jesus Christ has given you? Use the power of your words, deeds, and influence to gain entrance to God's blessed life.
