“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” John 10:10 (AMP)
This is one of my favorite verses on the planet. Why? First, it shows a clear separation between Jesus and the enemy. I think that is so important. People tend to blame God when bad things happen, many times they don’t even realize it. But, if you read the verse above, you’ll see very clearly who came to steal, kill and destroy and it was not God. The enemy always brings destruction, while Jesus brings life.
The second reason why this is one of my favorites is that it states, Jesus came so that we might enjoy life in abundance! How amazing is that? He doesn’t just want us to have life, he wants us to ENJOY LIFE! Woohoo! Don’t spend another minute complaining about what the enemy has done, go out and enjoy your life!
