More Life

I am seized by a statement Jesus says...
"The Son gives life to whomever He wishes."
(John 5:21 NRSV)

I don't think Jesus is only talking about the initial "new life" we experience when we begin a relationship with Him. I'm convinced Jesus is speaking of more than on an everyday basis, life in the midst of death, life as we face fears and failures.

I know there's far more to the "life" Jesus offers. My problem is...I don't seek it enough. Too often I squirm in the muck of everyday without asking Jesus for His "life".

I could experience so much more if I simply asked...
Jesus wants to give away "life".
