From Jesus, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly (John 10:10)."
Though His words are rejected by those who do not believe Him, they have been light and life for me, working to prove Him in the darkest hours, encouraging me through all times, and giving me joy in what it means to have the faith He offers. John 10:10 reminds me of the process of growing out of the destructive blindness of self-satisfaction (Isaiah 5:20-21) and living out a journey along the path that grows brighter (Proverbs 4:18).
The volumes of details I could write about how He has sustained me in faithfulness to His Word, increased my faith even in times when I was tempted to question their truth, and made His presence/work known to me cannot fit here, and yet in comparing my experiences to some other believers, my details are small.
Many quotes from good people are on my list of favorites, but these words of truth are the words of life (Acts 4:12) for time and eternity!
