I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). (John 10:9, 10 AMP).
Many Christians today are enduring life. They are suffering from all sort of sicknesses and diseases, they are broke, broken hearted, depressed, afraid of the future, etc. Such people have not realised or understood the purpose of Jesus Christ in their lives. “Christ in you, the hope of glory“. When a person has Jesus, he/she has everything because God has placed everything that person needs in Jesus. And Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. In other words, there is hope for the future.
In John 10:10, Jesus said the devil came to steal, kill, and destroy. Satan came to steal the joy in your family, he came to steal your health, your business ideas, promotion, and all other gifts you received from God. He wants you in Hell.
He came that you may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance. He came that you will have eternal life. Jesus wants you to enjoy each day of your life. What did he do to make that possible? He took every pain and sorrow, fear, sickness and disease, disappointments, failures, sins, and guilt to the cross. When all was done, He cried IT IS FINISHED!
If Jesus hadn’t come to die, we would have remained slaves to sin. And if He hadn’t resurrected from the dead, we would have been the most miserable people on earth. I thank God for sending His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the Cross so that we can be made right with Him. Today we can go before His throne of grace with confidence. Hallelujah!
