165. “I have come that they might have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10).
We’re not living correctly. That’s the truth of sin’s impact on the life God gave us. Sin corrupts the plan, leads us down destructive paths, and simply mars the better plan God wants us to enjoy. You see, God created life and He knows the best way for it to be lived. So it makes sense to listen to Him concerning life choices, attitudes, behaviors, even thoughts. He knows, and in this verse Jesus reveals a key purpose of His coming is to fill us in on how to shift back into that original plan. He has come to show us life–to demonstrate it at its best levels, and to reveal the kind of life we can have if we simply follow Him. Sounds like Someone we should be listening to, doesn’t He?
