John 10:10 (NKJV) The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
In the movie, The Sixth Sense, a little boy with unusual powers looks up at the character played by Bruce Willis and says, “I see dead people.” As I look at the world around me, I have something in common with that little boy. I see dead people, too, but they are still walking around in the flesh. Their eyes reflect the sorry truth that their soul has become consumed, dry and desperate. They’ve lost their purpose and reason for living-or they’ve never found it. Do you see what I see? or are you one of those dead people?
For many of us life is a grind, and we can at times feel victimized by everyone and everything around us. Just a word of Revelation our deadness can be at times emotional and spiritual rather than physical, but the bottom line is people are no less dead as can be. Are you dead or still alive?
Jesus came so we could have life and more abundantly. Without the Lord in our lives we are dead people walking. Have a marvelous weekend..
