If we truly understood the motivations of Satan, we should want nothing to do with him. Jesus says here he comes only to steal, kill, and destroy. When he was dealing with Job, he took everything he had including his children. Satan plays for keeps. Yet despite knowing this, how many times do we give in to his temptations?
I’m glad there’s a second half of John 10:10 because Jesus tells us what He offers. He comes so that we may have life and not just life, but an abundant life.
It’s a clear choice – we can follow the enemy who comes to wreak havoc or follow Jesus, who offers an abundant, fruitful life in Him. Which are you going to choose?
