Details: I have a personal issue about this principle in Christianity. All I believe in my life that following Jesus Christ is all about sacrifice, disapproval, pain etc on the other words it is not easy. But there was a Christian church I attended, they are teaching the opposite as I had understood it. They are saying that for us to know that we are living the right path, we must have an abundant life because that is why Jesus lived with us so we may have a full life (John 10:10).

For me I comforted myself with self-explanation of maybe they are saying that  that abundant life doesn’t necessarily an earthly possession. This for me not to contradict on what I believe for years in following Jesus.

But after continue attending their church. It is like they are really referring on earthly possession as they are always citing example of Abraham, David, Solomon, Job, etc and other Bible characters that lived in abundant life.

I searched about it and I found that their teaching is about Prosperity Gospel. Which happened sound contradicting on what I believe and what I experienced in life.

I will admit it or I will be hypocrite if I’m not going to say that I want to live in prosperity. But in my experience, the lesser I have in this world the more I get closer to God because I know that I don’t have in this world. I can’t rely on my capability but I should only trust to God.

I tasted both richness and poorness in this world. Yes of course I want to live a better life but  it would be better if I can say the word that Hillsong says in this song, I will live what God want us to live “even when it hurts”.

In the end, I still believe that God’s grace is sufficient to us. We will never so nothing in this world, because we have HIM.
