Stop Waiting

May 5, 2010

In John 10:10 Jesus says that He has come to give life and that we can have it to the fullest or in abundance. Taken in the context of the surrounding verses you see that the reason He can say that and then give it, is because He is the good shepherd that lays down His life for His sheep.

*The abundant life that Christ is referring to is not wealth, health and SUV in the Hampton’s, but a spiritually full life.

So with understanding that, the question is, why aren’t people living that life? It seems to be that Christians wait to live that life because they are waiting for God to do something. Almost like we are waiting for God to do something amazing.

News Flash! God has already done something amazing! Not only is He the good shepherd but He says in John 10 that He lays down His life for the sheep! Alluding the work that He was going to do on the cross!

He has come, given His life, taken it back up again so that we can have life! And have it to the fullest!

So stop waiting and start living!
