Therefore Jesus said again, "I tell you the truth, I am the gate
for the sheep. ... whoever enters through me will be saved. He will
come in and go out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal
and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have
it the full."
~ John 10:7,9-10 ~
Jesus came to the world to give us life. He didn't come to bring
us rules, or judgement, or fear, or work. Jesus came to give us
life in its fullest form. While we know that this is promised to us
when we go to be with him for all eternity, John wants us to
clearly hear that Jesus' promise to give us life begins right now!
Not JUST life later, but also life NOW!
Almighty God, I confess that sometimes I play life too
carefully, not risking failure and loss and not reaching for your
opportunities and your concerns. Give me a heart that yearns to
live life in all its fullness by seeking after your will, Jesus'
example and the Holy Spirit's leading in my decisions today, and
always. Through the name of Jesus I ask this to your glory.
