An Abundant Life
“...I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” As the Good Shepherd, Jesus spoke these words to assure His flock that He will protect them from enemies and also provide for their needs. Even though Jesus will lay down His life for the sheep and thus give them opportunity for eternal life, His words also affirm that He wants His disciples to have an abundant life while they live on the earth. And if He wants us to experience such a life, He will help us live that life to the full.
