‘The thief comes only to steal…’ John 10:10

Using his own home as a demo, TV anchorman Brandon Brooks showed his viewers how to protect their homes from robbers. He installed double locks on all the doors, windows that can’t be opened from outside, sophisticated alarms-the works. But what he failed to take into account was that thieves were also watching and learning the details of his security system and where the TV, VCR, and furniture were located. The following week, while Brooks was on the air, they cleaned him out-because that’s what thieves do! Satan is a thief! Jesus said he ‘…comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that [you] may have life…to the full.'(John 10:10 NIV) Henry Blackaby says: ‘Since Adam and Eve, people have had to choose who to believe. Satan convinced them that disobeying God would gain them everything. Instead it robbed them of all they had, and for the rest of their lives they experienced only a fraction of the blessing God intended…The world wants to convince you you’ll find fulfilment by adopting its standards of morality for your marriage, raising your children, and advancing your career…If you believe this you’ll never experience the blessings God intended. Sin brings death (Romans 6:23)…Jesus wants you to live your life with security, knowing you’re His beloved child. If you’re not experiencing His love, joy and peace today you’re settling for less than God intended. If you’ve been making excuses for why you’re not living an abundant and joyful life, determine to settle for nothing less than God’s best. Instead of following the world’s way…listen to the Saviour’s voice and…find fulfilment.’
