The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
In this passage in the Book of John, Jesus explains the consequences of following anyone but Himself: destruction, disappointment and disaster. He then promises that if we follow Him, He will shepherd us through the door that provides life and He will let us have life abundantly.
we are easily distracted by things that take our financial resources, our time and our focus. Help us to redirect our thoughts and actions to reflect You in our world. Help us to make space in all facets of our lives for You. We thank You for laying down your life for us so that we may spend eternity with You. Amen
