I Have Come So That You May Have Life
I HAVE COME SO THAT YOU MAY HAVE LIFE— and have it more abundantly. The chief purpose of My incarnation was to secure eternal Life for you. However, I also want you to live abundantly today—and all your days. To do this, you need to remember Whose you are and who you are. You belong to Me, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. And you are My beloved child, adopted into My royal family. Adoption is a forever-transaction: I have not hired you as My employee. I have made you a permanent member of My family.
Don't let the familiarity of these truths lull you into sleepwalking through your days. I, your faithful Guide, am more vibrantly alive than you can fathom! As you stay close to Me, some of My Life “rubs off” on you—awakening your heart so you can live more fully. This helps you see that you are on an adventurous journey with Me— where you make a difference, where your choices significantly impact the world. And I, your God, will be your Guide even to the end.
Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 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.”
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.
This God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.
