“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10).
I often hear someone say that becoming a Christian means you get to go to heaven when you die. While the statement is true, such a long look at the life of faith is too short-sighted. To live life committed to the Lordship of Jesus Christ transforms your daily existence not just your eternal destiny. Looking only to the end is to miss the abundance of today.
