The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full (and that more abundant). John 10:10
God wants us to know Him beyond our natural ability to know Him. We spend time in the Word learning of His Love for us, His power and desire to give us abundant life eternally. Often we think of the eternal as life after death. God says eternal, meaning from RIGHT NOW and forever. Christ is the Life that we who are hidden with Him in God have attained. This promise of infinite Life that we are living does not promise that our mortal body will not pass away; but it is the promise of infinite Life that where we are with Him in God will continue on infinitely from RIGHT NOW and even after the natural body has passed away
Eternal Life which IS Christ, is the Way to victoriously live in this world. The Way is Christ, which points back to the Life that He is. Certainly if He is the Life He is also then the Way in which we must live to obtain the complete and excellent fullness of Him in our living RIGHT NOW. We understand that He is the Way to the Father; but the Way does not begin with our conversion and end when we are in our heavenly home with God our Father. It also means the Way that leads to our Father RIGHT NOW in our place of need. Therefore (Christ) The Life leads to (Christ) the Way into the Father’s presence RIGHT NOW. Life in this Way is Truth and that Truth is Christ who sets us free RIGHT NOW. He is The Way the Truth and the Life… RIGHT NOW and from now on…. And this is truly life and that more abundant.
Jesus answered, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. -John 14:6
