Melissa — Look at this, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10) The first half of this verse is substandard and the second half is premium. I am always drawn to that word “might” in this passage. That tells me abundant life is not a guarantee. It’s not a guarantee to those that are asleep because their life is ruled by substandard, unclean fear. If we don’t wake up we can’t operate in the abundance.
Satan has come to steal, kill and destroy BUT take hope because God’s government is higher. God’s government came in Jesus to give, bring to life and build and to give us life more abundantly. “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” (Jn.10:10, Amp)
