What does the abundant life look like? Part 3

April 3, 2011

(NASB, John 10:10)   “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

I think we need to spend a moment or two on the thief.  I don’t want to give him too much time or energy.  Give ’em an inch, as they say.  But I was blessed by this little reminder and hope you are too.

The enemy of your soul wants only a very limited number of things.  But those things he wants will destroy you if you even lend him a moment of your time.  He does not want to make you rich, but he will if he cans steal your riches as well as your soul.  He does not want to prolong your life, but he will if he can have you as his forever friend. He does not want to you to create, or build, but he will help you just for the pleasure of knocking it down.

The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy.  Do not forget that for a moment.
