A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10)
We don’t solicit contributions here, so that’s not what this is about. What it’s about is the incredible gap between the Bible’s promises and believers’ experiences. In spite of passages like John 10:10, the average Christian lives no better than his unbelieving counterpart, and in the opinion of many he’s really worse off. Simple observation would indicate that those who exceed the average do so more because of their worldly skills than their piety. (Thankfully, some are gracious enough to give God the credit anyway.) And we don’t want to even mention the portion of our “abundant life” that’s made possible through the acquisition of debt rather than wealth.
