“I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10b


Yesterday we discovered the enemy’s strategy to get us all off God’s purpose and plan for our lives. His plan is to steal, kill, and destroy. When we know that, we can be better prepared to defend against it. But to win any fight, you need a good offense as well as a defense.

In today’s verse, we learn about the offensive strategy Jesus has for us. Jesus didn’t come to earth, live perfectly, die sacrificially, and rise bodily just so we could avoid the enemy’s assault. He did it so we could get the most out of life.

An abundant life paints a picture of more than just survival. When we step over the line of and acknowledge Jesus for who He is – the Son of God – and we ask Him to take over our lives, we can move from a defensive position to an offensive progression in the spiritual fight. We can discover the most out of every moment and every day! Are you getting the most out of every day? With Jesus, you can!


Thank God for giving you the opportunity to experience life abundantly through Christ. Pray for the attitude and posture you need to make the most of every day.


Making the most of every day happens when your life is about more than just you. Today, reach out to someone you see struggling, invite them to church with you, and tell them how they too can get the most out of life through Jesus!
