“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10 NKJV
The thief who comes in to steal, kill, and destroy is Satan. Many follow after the ways of the world being deceived by Satan and his lies and schemes. But Jesus has come to give life and give it more abundantly.
What is amazing about the Christian journey is to find life you must be willing to lay down your life. When we come to understand this world is not our home, we begin to live life differently. Our focus becomes God and His kingdom and it's our pursuit of Jesus Christ and drawing near to Him that we truly find life.
A person who foolishly chases after the world and its desires will in the end simply find destruction. True life is found in Jesus alone. He alone is the only way to the Father. The road to life is narrow and few will find it. May we pursuit Jesus with our whole heart, mind, soul, and strength.
