“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)

I certainly live a filled up life. The demands of marriage, children, ministry, and friendship are many and time-consuming.

But do I live a full life?

That is another question entirely.  How does it look on my Outlook calendar? Do I have time to live ‘life to the full’ and keep my house clean? What does a full life feel like?

How would Jesus have defined ‘life to the full’?

Earlier in this passage in John, Jesus is talking about sheep knowing their shepherd and responding to his voice. Jesus is teaching that there is a way of life that leads to death and a way of life that leads to life. The only way to know for sure between the two, is to listen for the shepherd’s voice.

This month, we are going to talk about rhythms of life…life-giving rhythms that put us in tune with the shepherd’s voice.

“My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” John 10:10
