What did Jesus mean when He promised an abundant life?

SHORT ANSWER:  Jesus mentions the “abundant life” in John 10:

[10] The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

This abundant life begins at the moment a person is born again.  Upon repentance and belief in the Gospel the Spirit of God comes to indwell the new believer.  The Spirit of God causes our spirit man to be brought to life.  This new life causes a complete change in ones' desires and attitude.

The Spirit of God also brings into our lives the “fruit of the Spirit” that empowers us live a life that would be impossible in our own effort.

The new believer is now in God’s hands, and God promised to take care of our needs.  In light of this promise Jesus calls us to a worry-free life.  A life of total dependence on God that frees us from the stress of taking care of ourselves and allows us to serve him in a way that is not possible in our own power.  I believe this is the abundant life.
