“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep.” - John 10:10-11
What does it mean to live life to the full? Living to the age of 80 or 85? Or, having all the material possession that society tells you that you should? How does the Shepherd laying down his life for you change your answer?
In the book, The Me I Want to Be, John Ortburg defines this as a starting point:
Life is the power to make something happen. Throw a rock, and it soon stops moving. But, put a seed in the ground, and something happens – it sends out a root, takes in nourishment, and grows up to fruitful. To be spiritually alive means to receive power from God to have a positive impact on your world.
