Life Givers is built upon a truth from the Bible found in the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 10.  Jesus said, “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.  My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life (NLT).”  This verse articulates the purpose for Jesus coming and that was to give LIFE.  You need to note that there is NO condition attached to this promise.  This is a statement declaring the kind of life God wants us to know and that is life in abundance, to the full, and overflowing.

Most of us, if asked whether or not this describes the life we know, if truthful, would have to say no.  But this was and still is God’s intent, His heart, and His reason for sending His Son into this world.

It is good to do a personal checkup and see where you are in relation to what God has promised you.  For folks that are healthy this verse is a challenge.  For those facing some kind of serious illness or life altering situation, it would seem impossible.  Nevertheless, God makes the promise TO ALL in this life and so it is incumbent on us all to see how we can receive what He plans to give.

Abundant life is God’s will for us all.  Our task is to figure out what that means for us and do all we can to receive what God wants to give.  You could begin by meditating on this idea and then write your thoughts to me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
