John 10:10

At Resources For Life, we chose the scripture JOHN 10:10 to be the words and foundation for what we do and why we do it.

In short, Jesus came in order to give us LIFE more ABUNDANTLY!

In reponse to this, everything we do here is directed towards that purpose.  When we create a new product, or adjust one – it’s because we want those who receive our material to have this ‘abundant life’ that Jesus promises.

JOHN 10:10

English Standard Version
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

JOHN 10:10

The Passion Translation
A thief has only one thing in mind - he wants to steal, slaughter, and destroy. But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect - life in its fullness until you overflow!

JOHN 10:10

New Living Translation
The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

Born to Christian parents, I was 17 years old when I accepted Jesus as my Saviour.  It wasn’t until I was 21 years old that I really realised or understood what ‘walking with Jesus’ was all about.  It was then that I entered into a completely different relationship with Him.  Over the years I have been allowing Him to expand my life and as a result I have been experiencing Him more abundantly!

There is one more Bible verse that comes to mind.  It is a very well know passage that comes from Jeremiah, 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord.  “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”  (NLT).

I chose to share this particular passage in this particular translation with you because last week, I met with a friend who described his life at the moment, as a ‘disaster’.  We live in a world where we live next door to, work with and walk past people on a daily basis who are living a less than abundant life.  

I have made it my challenge to help someone in some way on a daily basis.

What can you do to help someone today?
