John 10:10 NRSVue

10The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

Some thoughts on this scripture

Jesus talks a lot about giving life and about the fullness of life. It's not just for hereafter. Eternal life is our faith in him, and in his word. His call is to be life-givers - to facilitate the full life of compassion, justice, reconciliation and peace. We are called to be ministers of life, serving the God who loves all life.
