Life to the Full
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.John 10:10
Only Christ can give us life to the full, because we are created in the image of God, and Christ gives us life as were created. True freedom only comes from Christ, because we have the Holy Spirit, and Christ guides us through life into Heaven. While we live the short life on earth, Christ gives us life to the full, which means nothing is missing and we know Heaven is our home.
Life to the full means Christ comes first, and then other people. We can never be free until we are free from self, and we live to bring people to Christ, and we need Christ with us. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1) Only Christ sets us free, or we are slaves to the world. But Satan tells people who don’t the Word, lies that the world gives freedom.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (John 8:32) When read and obey the Word, we will experience freedom, because Christ is always with us through the Holy Spirit, and we know Heaven is our home. How can we be free if don’t know the Word, by default people believe Satan’s lies and have false hope of Heaven.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) No one can be in Heaven with the Father except those who follow Christ’s guidance through life into Heaven. That is because Christ experience our life on earth, and died for our sins on the cross. When we are baptized into Christ we receive the indwelling Holy Spirit, which connects us to the Father and to Christ. We are now in the family of God and we are living life to the full, because Christ provides everything we need to get through life and into Heaven.
Today live life to the full, knowing Christ provides your needs, when we live to serve Him, bringing people to Christ. Christ will always find a way for every person to show Christ like behavior, and point people to Christ. We always show kindness, handing our Biblical literature, and inviting people to church.
Prayer: Guide me through life to live life to the full through Christ. Open doors where I can bring people to Christ. In Jesus name, Amen
