Abundant Life

Scripture reading

“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

–John 10:10

Thought of the Day

I was cleaning out an old backpack the other day and found some notes I had written from a big youth ministry conference a few years ago. I guess I was listening to one of the speakers at one of the worship services and something was said that grabbed me. I do that a lot. If I hear or see something that I like, I immediately scramble to find something to write with and something to write on. Then I stick them in backpacks that I never look at until years later. (Not really, or at least, not all the time.) Anyway, someone said something that I liked. Here it is.

“Christianity is not about bad people becoming good, it is about dead people
becoming alive.”

Sometimes, I think some people (certainly not you and me) forget these beautiful words from John 10. We, I mean, they forget that Jesus the Christ came to give us life. What an amazing life it is that He gives us. It is abundant life.


Christ Jesus, Thank you for the fullness You provide me. Amen.
