Daily devotional: Life lived to the fullest

Scripture
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 NIV

Observation
How ironic that often those who do not follow Jesus think that becoming a Christian takes away a life lived to the fullest, and that the pleasures of this world bring happiness and satisfaction. But Jesus taught the opposite; those who follow the world's ways are actually being influenced by Satan, who seeks only to steal and kill and destroy. Following Jesus does not result in lacking but rather results in a fulfilling, abundant life!

Application
Trust the Lord and His ways. Embrace Him and all that He is about. Enjoy life lived to the full.

Prayer
Lord, may Your name be glorified. Please draw people to You. Open their eyes so they can see their emptiness and dissatisfaction is coming from doing things with worldly wisdom. Instead, please let them see those who follow You completely and the life lived to the fullest. Thank you for blessing us with more than we could ask or imagine. I love you, Lord!
