Notice the last part–the part about rich.

John 10:10 “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”

Rich and Satisfying! Wow! God’s purpose is to give US a rich and satisfying life. How can that be? We are self centered and ignore the great need around us and the God of the universe want to give us a rich and “Satisfying” life.

I love when Jesus uses stories to explain spiritual knowledge. When things happen, when the wolf breaks through the fence and has your throat in his teeth, tell yourself God’s purpose, again and again.

This is the way the Message explains His purpose.”

“Jesus told this simple story, but they had no idea what he was talking about. So he tried again. “I’ll be explicit, then. I am the Gate for the sheep. All those others are up to no good—sheep stealers, every one of them. But the sheep didn’t listen to them. I am the Gate. Anyone who goes through me will be cared for—will freely go in and out, and find pasture. A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.”

Do what he tells you.” ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭12:12-13‬ ‭MSG‬‬
