“Live your best life now!” That’s a fairly popular modern slogan.
In fact, Jesus said something that sounds kind of similar: “I came that they have may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). His words suggest that life itself isn’t necessarily abundant. Something else needs to be present for it to take on an abundant character–and that is living your best life now.
This sermon on John 10:1-21 explores Jesus’ words, what it means that he is our Good Shepherd, and some practical steps to embrace abundant life.
