John 10:10 - The Abundant Life!

John 10:10 - The Abundant Life!

John 10:10 (KJV)  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. 

  Jesus warns us to be on guard for thieves who will try to rob 
us of what God has for us. Jesus wants us to enjoy abundant life 
(John 10:10). Since the time of Adam and Eve, people have had to 
choose whom to believe. Satan convinced Adam and Eve that forfeiting 
their obedience to God would gain them everything. Instead, their 
disobedience robbed them of all they had. For the rest of their lives they 
experienced only a fraction of the blessings God had intended. Scripture is 
replete with accounts of those who forfeited their inheritance as 
children of God in order to gain that which was transitory and empty.  
  The world seeks to convince you that you will find fulfillment 
if you adopt its standard of morality for your marriage, raising 
your children, advancing your career, or pursuing pleasure. If you 
believe this, you will never experience the blessings God intended for 
you. Sin brings death (Ro 6:23). It is tragic to listen to the voices 
of the world instead of to the One who created life and who wants 
you to experience life to its fullest.  
  Jesus wants you to live your life with security, knowing that 
you are a beloved child of God. If you are not experiencing love, 
joy, and peace, you have settled for less than what God intends for 
you. If you have been making excuses for why you are not experiencing 
an abundant and joyful life, determine today to settle for nothing 
less than God's best for your life. Stop following the world's way of 
finding satisfaction. Instead, listen to the Savior's voice, and you 
will find true fulfillment. [Experiencing God Day by Day by Henry and 
Richard Blackaby re John 10:10] 

The Bible is the most amazing resource for living! Praying is 
how we communicate with God; studying God's Word is how He 
communicates with us. [The One Year Bible for New Believers]
